Cameroon, SW Dist., Tomber, March 19 mm

Perhaps this second picture showing the elytral pattern may help.

May be a dusty Gnathoenia venerea female ? (the pronotum color should be orange)

Claude: I checked and I have a series of 7 of them and they all look like this one. The pronotums are all the same greyish color.

He Bill, your specimen could be also Gnathoenia tropica. One of the main difference is the third antenal joint longer then the fourth on venerea while equal or shorter on tropica.
