Saint Lucia St. Lucia Saint Lucia Lesser Antilles
Distribution. Lesser Antilles, St. Lucia.
Diagnosis. Within the genus, species most similar to A. vincenti n. sp., especially by its small size. It can be separated from the latter species by the yellowish margin of its cheeks, details in coloration of the head and pronotum, and details in male genitalia.
Coloration. Fig. 3 A–D. Compared to A. vincenti n. sp., head dorsum clearly yellowish along eyes inner margins (Fig. 3 A), face lighter below median ocellus (Fig. 3 B), cheeks yellow (Fig. 3 C), scape light yellow but antennae darker from their bases (Fig. 3 B); maxillary palpi yellowish, distal half of joint 5 dark brown (Fig. 3 B). Antennae light brown, getting darker along their length. Anterior and posterior margins of DD yellow (Fig. 3 A). LL and abdomen, including subgenital plate, black brown (Fig. 1 C), but subgenital plate lighter from above (Fig. 3 A). Cerci light brown. Legs yellowish brown with darker knees. Male genitalia.Fig. 3 E–G. Pseudepiphallic sclerite more similar to A. septentrion n. sp., but median lobes separated apically by a small notch and anterior margin of pseudepiphallic sclerite strongly sclerotized as in A. vicenti n. sp.; pseudepiphallic process shorter than in A. vincenti n. sp., thus more similar to A. septentrion n. sp. in lateral view. Female. Subgenital plate very transverse, distal margin bisinuate; entirely black brown. Penultimate sternite black brown. Ovipositor shorter than TIII. Female genitalia. Not examined. Measurements (in mm).
