Remarks. This new species differs from A. anduzei   by having the body with darkish blue reflection and the metapectal-propodeal disc black; the clypeus with the median lobe rounded and long; the antennal scrobe ecarinate; the vertex convex; the pronotal disc with its transverse pronotal carina incomplete; the basiparamere inner margin excavated; the paramere swollen apically; and the aedeagus apical portion wide and as long as the basal portion, whereas A. anduzei   has the body with darkish green reflection; the clypeus with the median lobe angulate and short; the antennal scrobe carinate; the vertex straight; the transverse pronotal carina present and complete; the basiparamere inner margin uniform; the paramere slender and club-shaped; and the aedeagus with the apical portion slender and longer than the basal portion.
