Phlugis  stigmata Nickle, 2003: 44; Eades et al., 2017.

Diagnosis. Apex of hind wings extending beyond tergite X and reaching median length of cerci ( Fig. 10A View Figure ). Posterior margin of tergite X bilobate, with two rounded lobes in dorsal view ( Fig. 10H View Figure ). Cerci elongate, longer than subgenital plate and styli cylindrical, slightly curved in dorsal view, sinuous in lateral view and with distal portion decurved and laterally flattened ( Fig. 10E–G View Figure ). Styles curved, parallel sided and with its internal margins not touching each other in the basal and median regions ( Fig. 10E View Figure ).

Geographical records. Peru: Loreto ( Fig. 19 View Figure ). 

Comments. This species was originally described in Phlugis  by Nickle (2003). As in A. viridis  sp. nov., this species shares diagnostic characters of the new genus here proposed, with males having asymmetric jaws, head in dorsal view laterally broadened and rounded, and apex of tegmen not extending beyond the apex of the cerci.

Despite the detailed description made by the author of males and females, the morphology of the stridulatory file and internal genitalia were not noted.
