Holotype, female, Type depository: Fortitude Valley:Queensland Museum, Queensland, Australia . junior synonym (discovered by Gullan1984, 82).

- Systematics: Slide-mounted adult female is characterized by having: abdominal segment IX with ventral and dorsal lengths subequal, not fused with abdominal segment VIII; abdominal segment IX with posterior margin truncate ventrally; venter of head without spine-like setae; multilocular pores absent from dorsum (Gullan, 1984). A. rosaeformis males belongs to Group II that lack well-developed caudal extentions on abdominal segment VIII, although there are suggestions of small bumps on each side of this segment. It differs from other other two species in this group (A. pharetrata and A. spinifer) in having: (i) no prescutal setae; (ii) long, rather narrow claws. (Hodgson, 2020)
- Structure: Female gall cylindrical to fusiform, apex truncate. Male galls are compound (Gullan, 1984).
- Biology: Female gall is produced on both leaf surfaces, especially near the midrib. Male gall is attached to the maternal gall (Gullan, 1984).
- General Remarks: Detailed description and illustration by Gullan (1984) who also provides photographs of the galls. Detailed description and illustration of male in Hodgson, 2020.
