Mandible very narrow, curved, and with teeth equally wide. Median clypeal lobe rounded, long, with apical median tooth. Frons coriaceous  . Antennal scrobe carinate. Eye large. Frontal angle of ocellar triangle acute; ocelli large. Vertex convex. Pronotal disc shorter than wide, strongly coriaceous  ; transverse pronotal carina complete; with posterior pronotal sulcus. Notaulus very narrow. Mesoscutellar sulcus narrow; posterior mesoscutellar sulcus present. Metapectal-propodeal disc short; metapostnotal median carina complete; longitudinal ridges absent; metapostnotal-propodeal suture convergent to 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 glabrous. Genitalia. Basiparamere as long as paramere; paramere slender, rounded, with ventral margin convex and dorsal margin straight, and basal portion angled, glabrous; basivolsella straight; cuspis with arms short, dorsal arm wide; aedeagus with basal portion angled and wide, and apical portion as long as basal and swollen; apodeme slender.

Remarks. This new species differs from A. interruptus  by having the anteromesoscutum with the notaulus narrow; the posterior mesoscutellar sulcus present; the metapostnotum without longitudinal ridges; the metapostnotal-propodeal suture convergent to the first metapostnotal carina; the mesopleuron with the lower fovea and mesopleural suture closed; the basiparamere as long as the paramere; the paramere basal portion angled; and the basivolsela uniform, whereas A. interruptus  has the anteromesoscutum with very notaulus narrow; the posterior mesoscutellar sulcus absent; the metapostnotum with longitudinal ridges; the metapostnotal-propodeal suture straight; the mesopleuron with the lower fovea and mesopleural suture opened; the basiparamere shorter than the paramere; the paramere basal portion abruptly slender; and the basivolsela with an apical excavation at inner margin and with a short basal projection.
