Pronotal disc as long as wide, strongly coriaceous  ; transverse pronotal carina present, incomplete; posterior margin with posterior pronotal sulcus. Notaulus very narrow. Mesoscutellar disc with mesoscutellar sulcus narrow. Metapectal-propodeal disc long; metapostnotal median carina complete; longitudinal ridges present; metapostnotal-propodeal suture straight; paraspiracular carina present and inconspicuous; metapleural carina present and conspicuous; metapectal-propodeal disc with short striae; propodeal declivity strigate. Mesopleuron with anterior fovea closed; mesopleural fovea opened; lower fovea opened; posterior fovea absent; mesopleural suture opened. Forewing with stigma developed; Rs&M vein distinguished.

Remarks. This new species differs from A. pulchripennis  by having the body with golden-green reflection; the clypeus short, with the apical margin truncate, and the clypeal carina distinct from the clypeus; the antennal scrobe carinate; the ocelli very small; the transverse pronotal carina present; the posterior margin with a posterior pronotal sulcus; the notaulus narrow; the metapostnotum without longitudinal ridges; and the mesopleural suture opened, whereas A. pulchripennis  has the body black; the clypeus very short, with the apical margin angulate, and clypeal carina hardly distinct from the clypeus; the antennal scrobe ecarinate; the ocelli small; the posterior margin without a posterior pronotal sulcus; the transverse pronotal carina absent; the notaulus very narrow; the metapostnotum without longitudinal ridges; and the mesopleural suture closed.
