Remarks. This new species differs from A. rufosignatus  by having the antennal flagellomeres short; the clypeus with the median clypeal carina higher than frons level; the antennal scrobe ecarinate; the eye small; the frons strongly coriaceous  ; the frontal angle of the ocellar triangle forming a right angle; the ocelli small; the metapostnotal-propodeal suture straight; the mesopleuron with the lower fovea not divided and the mesopleural suture opened; the paramere shorter than the basiparamere; and the cuspis with the arms very short, whereas A.

rufosignatus  has the antennal flagellomeres long; the clypeus with the median clypeal carina lower than frons level; the antennal scrobe carinate; the eye large; the frons coriaceous  ; the frontal angle of the ocellar triangle obtuse; the ocelli very small; the metapostnotal-propodeal suture convergent to the first metapostnotal carina; the mesopleuron with the lower fovea divided and the mesopleural suture closed; the paramere longer than the basiparamere; and the cuspis with the arms long.
