According to Blackburn 1891: 'A wide, short species, more brightly coloured than is usual in the genus, and well distinguished by the strong longitudinal carinulae of its ventral segments (except the last)'. 'It is near A. adelaidae, Hope, and planifrons, Blackb., but is distinguished
from both, in addition to the characters just mentioned, by its somewhat less transverse prothorax, the sides of which are much less strongly rounded.'
Described by Blackburn 1891 who gave the type locality as Lake Eyre Basin. Known by two early collections in the SA Museum from this region with the localities: Hergot Springs (=Marree) and Lake Mulligan (= southern arm of Lake Callabonna).
