Worker description. The worker has been adequately described by Shattuck (1991).
Queen and male unknown.
Although similar to A. nigripesHNS, this species is separable as noted in the discussion of that species. The gaster is distinctly lighter in color than the head and mesosoma, but is not distinctly bicolored as in the otherwise similar A. mlaluHNS, a species that lacks erect pronotal hairs (present in A. palligastrionHNS).
