( Figs 11GView FIGURE 11; 14J; 14O; 15C; 15E; 15K)

Description, male. Body length 4.92 mm. Head and mesosoma black; wings clear hyaline; metasoma dark castaneous. Head wide. Flagellomeres short, serrate and with sparse and short setae. Mandible wide and with teeth equally wide. Median clypeal lobe angulate, long; median clypeal carina higher than frons level. Antennal scrobe carinate. Eye large, circumocular suture present. Frontal angle of ocellar triangle acute; ocelli large. Vertex convex. Transversal sulcus of vertex present and occipital carina very high. Pronotal disc shorter than wide, with transverse pronotal carina followed by several carinae and large foveae, the series of fovea posteriorly followed by large foveae; transverse pronotal carina complete; with posterior pronotal sulcus. Notaulus wide. 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 divided; posterior fovea absent; mesopleural suture closed. Forewing with stigma developed; Rs&M vein not distinguished. Mesotibia not spinose. Claws trifid. Metasomal segments sparsely setose. Genitalia. Basiparamere as long as paramere; paramere wide, rounded, with ventral and dorsal margin straight, sparsely setose; 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.

Distribution. Brazil: Bahia.

Remarks. This new species differs from A. nigripes Evans, 1966  by having the antennal flagellomeres serrate; the pronotal disc with its transverse pronotal carina and posterior pronotal sulcus followed by a series of great foveae; the metapostnotum with the first metapostnotal carina and metapostnotal-propodeal suture convergent; and the mesopleuron with the anterior fovea longer than the posterior, whereas A. nigripes  has the antennal flagellomeres filiform; the pronotal disc with its transverse pronotal carina and posterior pronotal sulcus not followed by foveae; the metapostnotum with the first metapostnotal carina and metapostnotal-propodeal suture fused posteriorly; and the mesopleuron with the anterior fovea as long as the posterior.
