Remarks. This new species differs from A. analis by having the head distinctly longer than wide; the mandible step-shaped, slightly angled with five distal teeth that are not equal-sized; the clypeus very short, with the clypeal carina low and with the dorsal margin straight; the antennal scrobe ecarinate; the eye elongate; the ocelli large; the vertex straight; the metapostnotal-propodeal suture fused with the first metapostnotal carina; and the mesopleuron with the lower fovea and mesopleural suture closed, whereas A. analis has the head as long as wide; the mandible angled with four distal teeth with the two upper teeth wider than the others; the clypeus short, with the carina high and with dorsal margin arched; the antennal scrobe carinate; the eye not elongate; the ocelli small; the vertex convex; the metapostnotal-propodeal suture straight; and the mesopleuron with the lower fovea and mesopleural suture opened.
