Worker and Queen have been adequately described by Shattuck; the male caste remains unknown.
This species is known only from the several specimens comprising the type series. They were collected from a nest in a rotten tree branch.
As Shattuck (1991) originally noted it is most similar to A. murielaeHNS but differs in the lighter body color. The surface sculpture of the head is slightly coarser and the propodeal spines slightly wider; this latter difference is almost certainly sufficiently variable as to be of little value.
Found most commonly in these microhabitats: 1 times rotten branch on tree.
