Remarks. This new species differs from A. rufosignatus  by having the body with green reflections; the antennal scrobe ecarinate; the clypeus short, and with the clypeal carina angled; the frontal angle of the ocellar triangle forming a right angle; the vertex straight; the pronotal disc without a posterior pronotal sulcus; the mesoscutelar sulcus narrow; the metapostnotal-propodeal suture fused with the first metapostnotal carinae; the paraspiracular carina present and inconspicuous; and the mesopleuron with the lower fovea closed and not divided, whereas A. rufosignatus  has the body black; the antennal scrobe carinate; the clypeus long, and with the clypeal carina arched; the frontal angle of the ocellar triangle obtuse; the vertex convex; the pronotal disc with a posterior pronotal sulcus; the mesoscutelar sulcus wide; the metapostnotal-propodeal suture convergent to the first pair of metapostnotal carinae; the paraspiracular carina present and conspicuous; and the mesopleuron with the lower fovea closed and divided.
