Description. Male. Medium size, slender. Metazona of pronotum almost smooth. Fore femora without ventral spinules, fore tibiae with 1 external spur and 2 internal spurs on dorsal surface, ventral surface armed with 5 pairs of spurs. Mid femora with about 0–2 external ventral spinules, mid tibiae with 3 pairs dorsal spurs and 5 pairs of ventral spurs. Hind femora with about 7–9 ventral spinules on each side, hind tibiae armed with 6 external dorsal spines and 9 internal dorsal spines, with 3 apical spurs on each side. Venation of tegmina and hind wings as in fig. 6. Ra of tegmina with 3 branches near apex, Rs forked, MA bifurcate near base, MP+CuA 1 with 4 branches, CuA 2 with 3 branches. Ra of hind wings with 3 branches, Rs single and arising in the middle (R and Rs of tegmina single, MP+ CuA 1 with 3 branches, CuA 2 bifurcated. Ra of hind wings single, Rs arising behind the middle in A. sichuanensis). Tenth abdominal tergite and epiproct fused with each other (Fig. 7), sulcate above, dorsal surface with two longitudinal carinae and transverse wrinkles at each side (dorsal surface of 10 th abdominal tergite almost smooth in A. sichuanensis). Paraprocts closely wrapped the median lobe, with hooks curved upward. Cerci short and solid, conical. Subgenital plate triangularly notched at apex (shallowly emarginated at hind margin in A. sichuanensis), and with long styli (Fig. 9). Coloration of body blackish brown, shining.

Etymology. This new species’ name refers to the type locality.
Discussion. In its size and general appearance this new species is similar to A. sichuanensis Gorochov, 2001. It distinguished by the venation of tegmina, the male 10 th abdominal tergite and its subgenital plate.
