Description, female. Body length 4.69 mm. Head with golden-green reflection; wings subhyaline; metasoma dark castaneous, lightening posterad. Head wide. Mandible with five distal teeth, wide, angled, with teeth different sized. Median clypeal lobe quadrate, short, with median tooth; median clypeal carina hardly distinct from clypeus. Antennal scrobe carinate. Eye large; circumocular suture present. Frontal angle of ocellar triangle acute; ocelli small. Vertex convex. Pronotal disc as long as wide, strongly coriaceous and with transverse pronotal carina followed by carinae and series of foveae posteriorly followed by large foveae; transverse pronotal carina complete; posterior margin with posterior pronotal sulcus. Notaulus narrow. Mesoscutellar disc with mesoscutellar sulcus narrow; posterior mesoscutellar sulcus present. Metapectal-propodeal disc long; metapostnotal median carina complete; longitudinal ridges absent; metapostnotal-propodeal suture fused with first metapostnotal carina; paraspiracular carina present and conspicuous; metapleural carina present and conspicuous; metapectal-propodeal disc with short striae; propodeal declivity strigate. Mesopleuron with anterior fovea closed; mesopleural fovea closed; lower fovea closed; posterior fovea absent; mesopleural suture closed. Forewing with stigma developed; Rs&M vein distinguished. Mesotibia not spinose; claws trifid. Metasomal segments sparsely setose. Genitalia. T9 with anterior arm long and overlapping 2vf; 1vv longer than genitalia body; 2vv shorter than 1vv length, smoothly narrowing apicad; 3vv short; 1vf curved downward; 2vf slender and with dorsal lap swollen posteriorly; 1rv slightly curved forward, ventral process large, and posterior process short; 2rv slightly curved forward.

Remarks. This species differs from A. darlingtoni Evans, 1959 by having the median clypeal lobe quadrate with a median tooth on the apical margin; the circumocular suture present; the frons densely punctate; the pronotal disc with its transverse pronotal carina followed by carinae and the posterior pronotal sulcus followed by a large foveae; the notaulus narrow; and the mesopleuron with the lower fovea closed, whereas A. darlingtoni has the clypeus with the median lobe rounded, short, and with its apical margin truncate; the circumocular suture absent; the frons punctate; the pronotal disc with its transverse pronotal carina and posterior pronotal sulcus without sculpture; the notaulus very narrow; and the mesopleuron with the lower fovea opened.
