2. A. homoglans  Siddiqi, Khan & Reddy 1991

( Azimi et al. 2014) 10 ♀: L= 585.4 (522–641) µm; a= 28.8 (25.5–33.7); b = 6.1 (5.5–6.8); b' = 4.6 (3.9–5.2); c = 20.1 (17.4–23.3); c' = 2.3 (2.1–2.5); St = 14.7 (14.5–15) µm; V = 75.1 (73–77.8); V´ = 78.7 (75.6–81.2)

Associated plant and locality. Faba bean (Khuzestan).

Reference. Azimi et al. 2014 [F].

Remarks. The Iranian population of A. homoglans  is morphologically and morphometrically similar to the original population ( Siddiqi et al. 1991) and the only minor difference is the range of the length of the postvulval uterine sac (20–33 in Iranian population vs 30–45 Μm), that could be explained by differences in geographically distributed regions. It also differs from A. joenssoni  in having a smooth tail tip vs crenate, spermatheca shape (longitudinally oval vs rounded axial chamber with offset pouch), shorter tail and length of dorsal gland lobe is about two times the body width vs one time body width.
