Lamella postvaginalis triangular, concave anteriorly. Antrum funnel-shaped, half length of eighth segment. Ductus bursae spinulate from opening of ductus seminalis to corpus bursae; ductus seminalis originating from anterior 1/3 of ductus bursae.

DNA sequences: Two COI barcodes were sequenced (one male and one female). The genetic distance is 0.3% between the two conspecifics, with interspecific genetic distances of 2.2̄2.6% between A. (A.) surrecta   and A. (A.) lanosa   , sp. nov. ( Table 2).

Distribution. China (Fujian, Guangxi, Guizhou, Henan, Hunan, Yunnan).

Diagnosis. The diagnosis is given under A. (A.) lanosa   , sp. nov.

Etymology. The specific name is derived from the Latin surrectus, meaning nearly straight, referring to the nearly straight phallus as compared to the curved phallus of its congeners, A. (A.). angusta   and A. (A.) lanosa   , sp. nov.
