Notaulus narrow. Mesoscutellar disc with mesoscutellar sulcus narrow. Metapectal-propodeal disc long; metapostnotal median carina complete; longitudinal ridges present; 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.

Remarks. This new species differs from A. grandis  by having the head wider than long; the frontal angle of the ocellar triangle acute; the clypeus distinctly wide and long; the transverse pronotal carina followed by foveae and with a very small longitudinal carina; the pronotal disc with a median longitudinal line; and the metapostnotum with all carinae parallel, and with first metapostnotal carina complete, whereas A. grandis  has the head as wide as long; the frontal angle of the ocellae forming a right angle; the clypeus rounded, short, and with an apical median tooth; the transverse pronotal carina without foveae and with a small longitudinal carina; the pronotal disc without a median longitudinal line; and the metapostnotum with the metapostnotal-propodeal suture convergent to the first pair of metapostnotal carinae.
