Remarks. This new species differs from A. guianae by having the body black; the wings bi-banded; the clypeus angulate with the median clypeal carina higher than frons level; the antennal scrobe ecarinate; the transverse pronotal carina present; the posterior mesoscutellar sulcus present; the metapostnotal-propodeal suture convergent to the first pair of metapostnotal carinae; and the mesopleural fovea opened, whereas A. guianae has the body with green reflection and the propodeum black; the wings bi-banded; the clypeus with the apical margin truncate, with the median clypeal carina lower than frons level; the antennal scrobe carinate; the transverse pronotal carina absent; the posterior mesoscutellar sulcus absent; the metapostnotal-propodeal suture straight; and the mesopleural fovea closed.
