Diagnosis. This new species is similar to A. lehi Deeleman-Reinhold 1985 in having conductor and embolus proximad, but can be distinguished by the hook-shaped distal part of the conductor (Fig. 30), the presence of more than one distal cymbial spine (Figs 29 - 34), by the longer palpal tibia and longer legs as well as by the larger body size (conductor not bent inwards, with one long distal cymbial spine, with shorter palpal tibia in A. lehi).
Etymology. The specific name is derived from the Latin " reduncus ", meaning " bound inward, dished ", and refers to the unciform distal part of the conductor of the male; adjective.
