Remarks. This new species differs from A. penai by having the head longer than wide; the mandible with the lower tooth longer than the others; the clypeal carina higher than frons level; the antennal scrobe ecarinate; the frons distinctly strongly coriaceous ; the frontal angle of the ocellar triangle forming a right angle; the mesopleuron with the lower fovea not divided; the paramere shorter than the basiparamere; the basivolsella straight; the digitus without a basal projection overlapping the basal portion of the aedeagus; and the aedeagus with the basal portion wide and the apical portion long, whereas A. penai has the head wider than long; the mandible with the teeth equally wide; the clypeal carina lower than frons level; the antennal scrobe carinate, but weak; the frons coriaceous ; the frontal angle of the ocellar triangle acute; the mesopleuron with the lower fovea divided; the paramere longer than the basiparamere; the basivolsela with an apical excavation at inner margin; the digitus with the basal projection overlapping the basal portion of the aedeagus; and the aedeagus with the basal portion slender and the apical portion short.
