Description, male. Body length 3.69 mm. Head and mesosoma black; wings clear hyaline; metasoma castaneous. Head wide. Flagellomeres short, with sparse and short setae. Mandible very narrow, curved, and with teeth equally wide. Median clypeal lobe angulate, long; median clypeal carina higher than frons level. Frons coriaceous . Antennal scrobe ecarinate. Eye large. Frontal angle of ocellar triangle acute; ocelli small. Vertex convex. Pronotal disc shorter than wide, strongly coriaceous ; transverse pronotal carina complete; with posterior pronotal sulcus. Notaulus very narrow. Mesoscutellar sulcus narrow. Metapectal-propodeal disc short; metapostnotal median carina complete; longitudinal ridges absent; metapostnotal-propodeal suture straight; 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 opened. Forewing with stigma not developed; Rs&M vein distinguished. Mesotibia not spinose. Claws bifid. Metasomal segments glabrous. Genitalia. Basiparamere as long as paramere; paramere wide, rounded, and with ventral margin convex and dorsal margin straight, densely setose; basivolsella with short apical excavation at inner margin; cuspis with arms long, with basal projection at inner margin, dorsal arm slender; aedeagus with basal portion angled and slender, and apical portion longer than basal and wide; apodeme slender.

Remarks. This new species differs from A. similis by having the antennal scrobe ecarinate; the posterior mesoscutellar sulcus absent; the metapostnotal-propodeal suture straight; the mesopleuron with the lower fovea not divided; the metasomal segments glabrous; the paramere wide and as long as the basiparamere; the basivolsella with a short apical excavation at the inner margin; the cuspis with the arms long; and the aedeagus with the apical portion slender, whereas A. similis has the antennal scrobe carinate; the posterior mesoscutellar sulcus present; the metapostnotal-propodeal suture convergent to the first metapostnotal carina; the mesopleuron with the lower fovea divided; the metasomal segments sparsely setose; the paramere slender and shorter than the basiparamere; the basivolsela with the inner margin angled; the cuspis with the arms very short; and the aedeagus with the apical portion wide and swollen.
