Remarks. This new species differs from A. columbianus  by having the antenna with erect setae; the mandible narrow with the two upper teeth wider than others; the clypeus with the apical margin angulate and the clypeal carina higher than frons level; the antennal scrobe ecarinate; the genitalia with the paramere narrow, with the basal margin acute, and without a dorsal apical tooth; and the apodeme not parallel, whereas A. columbianus  has the antenna with dense and short setae; the mandible curved with the teeth equally wide; the clypeus median lobe quadrate with the clypeal carina lower than frons level; the antennal scrobe carinate; the genitalia with the paramere very wide, rounded, and with the ventral and dorsal margins straight with a short apical projection; and the apodeme parallel.
