It it very alike to Dolichostyrax Aurivillius, 1911; however, Morimopsini.
It might be Microdorcadion tuberculatum Pic, 1925

Thanks, Francesco.

I have the Pic 1925 paper and will check out the descriptions of Microdorcadion & M.tuberculatum.

Microdorcadion tuberculatum Pic, 1925 is a quite different sps, for me your spm belongs more to the genus Centruropsis Breuning, 1950

Thanks Andreas,

I had success with the Monograph. With your head start, I was able to key the specimen to Centruropsis.

The description matches well. The only thing that was not mentioned, which seems important, are the black velvet marks on the back of the head. The head on my specimen is not tucked all the way into the pronotum. I could see, depending on the condition of Pic's holotype which was studied by Breuning, these marks being hidden.

For now, I am going with Centruropsis dorcadionoides (Pic) 1928.

Bonsoir

Oui ce genre effectivement est un Centruropsis, j'avais pu voir il y a quelques années le type de cette espèce au MNHN (je n'avais pas pris de photos.....) dont l'habitus ressemble un peu au genre Dolichosthyrax entre autres choses, ce que j'avais noté dans mon fichier et ce que je pensais sur cette photo ne me doutant pas du tout qu'il s'agissait d'un Centruropsis mais plutôt à Dolichosthyrax ce qui ne me convenait pas !!
Donc oui votre bête est bien Centruropsis et très probablement l'espèce dorcadionoides.

La photo du type dans la galerie y ressemble mais j'ai tout de même un doute sur l'appartenance à l'espèce dorcadionoides ??
