Remarks. This new species differs from A. smithanus  by having the mandible narrow with its teeth equally wide; the clypeus short with the clypeal carina hardly distinct from the clypeus; the antennal scrobe ecarinate; the frontal angle of the ocellar triangle forming a right angle; the ocelli very small; the vertex convex; the pronotal disc with a posterior pronotal sulcus; the posterior mesoscutellar sulcus present; the metapostnotum with longitudinal ridges; and the genitalia with the 1rv ventral process large, whereas A. smithanus  has the mandible wide with its superior tooth curved upward; the clypeus long with the clypeal carina distinct from the clypeus; the antennal scrobe carina reaching the eyes; the frontal angle of the ocellar triangle acute; the ocelli small; the vertex straight; the pronotal disc without a posterior pronotal sulcus; the posterior mesoscutellar sulcus absent; the metapostnotum without longitudinal ridges; and the genitalia with the 1rv ventral process small.
