No Taxon pumila group
This is a provisional grouping of morphologically similar species. These species are very small, have three lateral carinae on the frons (which is flat), and have very rounded wings. The most distinctive members of this group are pumila (easily separated by distribution) and similis (which has more acutely-shaped wings). The species A. immaculata is also quite similar to this group, but is a somewhat larger species with more pronounced/reticulate wing venation and a more convex frons.
