Remarks. This new species differs from A. albistigmus by having the wings subhyaline; the head longer than wide; the mandible angled, and with the lower tooth longer than the others; the frontal angle of the ocellar triangle acute; the ocelli large; the notaulus narrow; the metapostnotum with longitudinal ridges; the mesopleuron with the lower fovea closed and not divided; the mesotibia spinose; and the 1vv longer than the genitalia body, whereas A. albistigmus has the wings bi-banded; the head as long as wide; the mandible slightly angled with the two upper teeth wider than the others; the frontal angle of the ocellar triangle forming a right angle; the ocelli very small; the notaulus very narrow; the metapostnotum without longitudinal ridges; the mesopleuron with the lower fovea closed and divided; the mesotibia not spinose; and the 1vv as long as the genitalia body.
