Discussion

Remarks. The male of A. (K.) lata most resembles that of A. (K.) makarchenkoi in the aedeagal complex with a broad lateral lobe, but differs from the latter in the dorsal lobe with a setal fringe along its almost full length. A. (K.) makarchenkoi has a dorsal lobe with a setal brush at the apex.
