I suspect it might be a female of Mallodon.
Please, could you add a picture of the ventral side of the prothorax?

What detail is concerned? The process between the coxae?

No, I though to the pro-episternal suture (arrow), which usually is bowed in all Physopleurus-females (images collected from Santos-Silva & Martins, 2003). In your specimen this suture seems to me right.
Moreover, the pronotum is smooth, while it is punctured in Physopleurus.
Hence, I think that it might be a female of Mallodon. Could you check the genae?

It is a female of Mallodon dasystomus baiulus (Erichson, 1847).

After the last revision, the name of this species is simply Mallodon baiulus (Erichson, 1847).
