Measurements data. A. minuta  . Female forewing length: 10.5–14.0 mm, n= 02; male forewing length: 7.0–9.0 mm, n= 9. A. minuta  variant 1. Female forewing length: 9.1–10.0 mm, n= 12; male forewing length: 7.0–8.0 mm, n= 11. A. minuta  variant 2. Female forewing length: 10.0–12.0 mm, n= 4; male forewing length: 8.1–9.0 mm, n= 32.

Remarks. This species occurs in the Roraima State in addition to the states of Amazonas, Pará, and Tocantins. (Rippel et al. 2019). During our sampling, we found two additional morphotypes, with minor variation in the pigmentation of the wing veins Sc and R 1 in A. minuta  variant 1 where they vary from hyaline to darker, as well a wider lateral stripe on the pronotum of male. Another variation, detected was the subgenital plate of female with only two lobes in A. minuta  variant 2, whereas four lobes in A. minuta  variant 1 and typical A. minuta  . The apex of the penis is bifid in A. minuta  variant 1 and 2.

A. minuta  variant 1— Male forewing length: 7–8 mm, length: 7 mm, penis length 0.07 mm and 0.03 mm width. Penis conical same as the previous species. Regularly curved hooks, with pointed apex, slightly shorter than the previous species. In lateral view, the dorsal keel is apparently shortened and spiculated. In ventral view, there are two of small membranous vesicles. The penis apex is short and tapered in lateral view with apex bifurcate in dorsal view. Wings with darker veins, except costa. Subgenital plate is wide with four undulating lobes, and the medial notch is deeper than the submedial notches.

A. minuta  variant 2— length 9 mm, penis length 0.07 mm and 0.03 mm width. Penis: generally conical according to previous species. Regularly curved hooks, with pointed apex, slightly shorter than A. minuta  , but similar to A. minuta  variant 1. In lateral view, there is a slight depression in front of the dorsal keel, discernably spiculated and bifid. In ventral view, there are two small membranous vesicles. The apex of the penis is short and acute in lateral view. The bifuricate apex of the penis in dorsal view similar to A. minuta  variant 1. Subgenital plate is wide with two lobes, with a deep medial notch.
