- Amblycerus virescens Ribeiro-Costa, 1998: 630 (original description, holotype, type locality: Brazil, Amazonas). Ribeiro-Costa 1998: 631–632, Figs 1–10. Detailed description and information of type material are in Ribeiro-Costa (1998).
Brazil (Amazonas, Amapá and Goiás).
This species can be distinguished from all other of virens group by the internal sac of male genitalia that has a pair of subtriangular sclerites with denticulate margins (Ribeiro-Costa 1998: 632. Fig. 9) (Amblycerus virens, Amblycerus viridis and Amblycerus viridans, have a pair of sclerites with small rounded protuberances) (Fig. 5; Ribeiro-Costa 1998: 634, 636. Figs 14, 19); Amblycerus medialis Ribeiro-Costa, Vieira & Manfio, sp. n. absent (Fig. 11)).
Amblycerus virescens and Amblycerus viridans have no salient eyes (Ribeiro-Costa 1998: 631. Fig. 1), postocular lobe long, and metaventrite not protuberant (Ribeiro-Costa 1998: 631. Fig. 4). However, comparisons of male genitalia indicate that Amblycerus virescens is similar to Amblycerus virens because they both have a wishbone sclerite that is longer than the blades (Fig. 5; Ribeiro-Costa 1998: 632. Fig. 9).
