Notes. In terms of coloration is similar to A. (Aracaleiodes) aglaurus Chen & He, 1991 . It differs from A. (Aracaleiodes) aglaurus and A. (Ar.) unfasciata Chen & He, 1991, in having the antenna black basal to the white band rather than yellow brown, from A. (Ar.) arsenjevi ( Belokobylskij, 1988) (= pulchricorpus Chen & He, 1991), in having the propodeum and 1 st tergite largely black; from A. (Ar.) hubeiensis in having the maxillary palp with white terminal segments, and from A. (Ar.) nitidus Chen & He, 1991, in having the posterior 0.3 of the 2 nd tergite black. In Chen & He (1997) it keys to A. (Ar.) nitidus.
