Remarks. This new species differs from A. venustus by having the body surface strongly coriaceous ; the antenna not elongate; the clypeus without a median apical tooth and the clypeal carina higher than frons level; the eye large; the vertex convex; the metapostnotum without longitudinal ridges; the mesopleuron with the lower fovea closed; the paramere as long as the basiparamere; the basivolsella straight; the cuspis arms short with a basal projection at the inner margin; and the aedeagus with the basal portion angled and wide, whereas A. venustus has the body surface coriaceous ; the antenna elongate; the clypeus with a median apical tooth and the clypeal carina lower than frons level; the eye small; the vertex straight; the metapostnotum with longitudinal ridges; the mesopleuron with the lower fovea opened; the paramere longer than the basiparamere; the basivolsela with a projection at the basal portion of the inner margin; the cuspis arms long, without a basal projection at the inner margin; and the aedeagus with the basal portion convex and slender.
