( Figs 12GView FIGURE12; 14L; 15I; 15K)

Description, female. Body length 4.54 mm. Head and mesosoma black; wings bi-banded; metasoma dark castaneous. Head long. Mandible with five distal teeth, wide, slightly angled, step-shaped, teeth not equally sized each other. Median clypeal lobe rounded, short, with blunt median tooth; median clypeal carina angled in lateral profile and hardly distinct from clypeus. Antennal scrobe ecarinate. Eye small. Frontal angle of ocellae forming right angle; ocelli very small. Vertex strongly convex. Pronotal disc as long as wide, with surface whole covered by longitudinal carina; transverse pronotal carina complete; posterior margin with posterior pronotal sulcus. Notaulus wide. Mesoscutellar disc with mesoscutellar sulcus narrow; posterior mesoscutellar sulcus present. Metapectalpropodeal disc short; metapostnotal median carina complete; longitudinal ridges absent; metapostnotal-propodeal suture fused with first metapostnotal carina; 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 divided; posterior fovea absent; mesopleural suture closed. Forewing with stigma developed; Rs&M vein distinguished. Mesotibia not spinose; claws trifid. Metasomal segments sparsely setose. Genitalia. T9 with anterior arm long and overlapping 2vf; 1vv as long as genitalia body; 2vv as long as 1vv length, abruptly narrowing apicad; 3vv short; 1vf strongly curved forward; 2vf slender and with dorsal lap strongly swollen posteriorly; 1rv strongly curved forward, ventral process large, and posterior process long; 2rv strongly curved forward.

Remarks. This new species differs from A. grandis  by having the head distinctly longer than wide; the mandible angled with its distal teeth irregular sized; the clypeal carina angled; the frons surface granulate; the circumocular suture present; the pronotal disc followed by a series of longitudinal carinae; the notaulus wide with the surface granulate; the metapostnotal-propodeal suture fused with the first metapostnotal carina, whereas A. grandis  has the head wider than long; the mandible slightly angled with the lower tooth longer than the others; the clypeal carina arched; the frons coriaceous  ; the circumocular suture absent; the pronotal disc without a longitudinal carinae; the notaulus narrow, with the surface coriaceous  ; and the metapostnotal-propodeal suture convergent to the first pair of metapostnotal carina.
