Comments. A. perlonga  is similar to A. bifiela  and A. chandela  by having the head wider than long, rectangular; the mandible with one tooth; the pronotum short; the notaulus complete and convergent posteriorly and the hypopygium with flap and posterior margin concave. However, bifiela  has the head rectangular with vertex slightly convex, as in A. chandela  , whereas A. perlonga  has the head rectangular with the vertex straight.

Remarks. The illustrations of the body, genitalia and hypopygium were provided using a non-type specimen.

Distribution. Neotropical ( Brazil, Ecuador).
