Remarks. This new species differs from A. cariniceps  by having the head longer than wide; the clypeus without a tooth at the anterior margin; the clypeal carina higher than frons level; the antennal scrobe carina just at anterior margin; the circumocular suture absent; the pronotal disc shorter than wide; the notaulus narrow; the mesoscutellum with the mesoscutellar sulcus narrow; the mesopleuron with the lower fovea closed; the basivolsella with an excavation at inner margin; and the aedeagus with the apical portion wide, whereas A. cariniceps  has the head wider than long; the clypeus with a tooth at anterior margin; the clypeal carina lower than frons level; the antennal scrobe carina weak; the circumocular suture present; the pronotal disc as long as wide; the notaulus wide; the mesoscutellum with the mesoscutellar sulcus wide; the mesopleuron with the lower fovea opened; the basivolsela uniform; and the aedeagus slender and swollen apically.
