A. terminalis?
I was browsing thru Shaw (1), and this looks more like A. terminalis (second metasomal segment orange and a white band on the basal half of the hind tibia).

 
Changed
I had checked with one of the authors, and the ID had been confirmed. However, in fairness to him, the photo he was confirming didn't provide as clear a view of the second metasomal segment. I see now that, in pseudoterminalis, the 2nd metasomal segment is black while it is not in terminalis.

 
Thanks Bob!!!
