Perennial herb from 18 to 35 cm tall.

Características claves para su identificación

A. marticorenae can be easily distinguished from A. angustifolia subsp. angustifolia, A. hookeri subsp. cummingiana, and A. hookeri subsp. recumbens by its pink flowers which have a conspicuous, yellow stripe and a spotted pattern of purple lines in the two upper inner tepals (Negritto & Baeza, 2015).
