Hi,

It must be a Deilochelus sp.
I found one also in Newland forest (near Kirstenbosh garden in Cape Town), which has the same coloration !
There is three species: D. obscurus, tookei and prionides.

You have a key in : M.C. Feirrera, G.V. Feirrera 1953. Uma especie nova do genero Deilochelus. Boletim da associação da filosophioa natural. but, it's in portugese..

Based on the key and images in the 1952 paper, this male is Delocheilus prionoides.

The key feature seems to be the prosternal process which is clearly grooved longitudinally.
