Remarks. This new species differs from A. inconspicuus  by having the antennal flagellomeres short; the clypeus with the clypeal carina lower than frons level; the antennal scrobe ecarinate; the frontal angle of the ocellar triangle forming a right angle; the ocelli large; the vertex straight; the transverse pronotal carina present; the metapectal-propodeal disc long; the mesopleuron with the lower fovea opened; the basivolsella with an apical excavation at inner margin; the cuspis with the ventral arm with an inner expansion; and the aedeagus with the basal portion angled and slender, whereas A. inconspicuus  has the antennal flagellomeres long; the clypeus with the clypeal carina higher than frons level; the antennal scrobe carinate, but weak; the frontal angle of the ocellar triangle acute; the ocelli small; the vertex convex; the transverse pronotal carina absent; the metapectal-propodeal disc short; the mesopleuron with the lower fovea closed; the basivolsela uniform; the cuspis with the ventral arm without an inner expansion; and the aedeagus with the basal portion convex and wide.
