Hi Anders

It makes me think of a Tlepolemus ... ?

Thank you, Pierre-Olivier.
Yes, I fully agree with you. But it does not agree with neither pilosus nor puerulus.

I have both species I will look in my boxes when I put them back in place....
However, it seems to me that your specimen belongs to the species pilosus and not puberulus which is much smaller already (I will look!). If it is not pilosus and although it is a new species, but this seems unlikely!
Pilosus is a beast that one does not see often and puberulus still much less! Pilosus is variable in its coloring. Puberulus I do not know?
I only saw one and it is that of my collection and that in photo in the Breuning's revision...

Thank you for your view, Jérôme.
Regarding the variability of T. pilosus, I can not comment, except that in the 6 specimens I have here it is remarkably stable in its design and also fully agree with the drawing in Téocchi 1986 (SciNat 48). I attach a poor photo of the Tlepolemus I have here: 6 T. pilosus (4 females + 2 males; note mandibular horns!), then the possibly new sp., and finally to the right 2 ex of T. puerulus.
Unfortunately the ?new sp. is a female, but differs from the pilosus females i.a. in that the antennas are shorter, scape slightly more slender, and the pronotal lateral spines more slender and acute. The elytral designs have hardly anything in common.

Ok Anders ! Indeed no problem there! Pilosus is probably stable although I have seen that were slightly different, as for puerulus which I have an ex is in any way very different!
This individual is a probably either a new species of Tlepolemus or something else (?), But I would have to look in my files or it is possible that I have something?
But to see a little later when I would definitely have everything arranged and found. Normally in not too long ..... Hope?
Another small question is it a genus Tlepolemus ??

This species was described as Tlepolemus grobbelaarae Bjørnstad, 2017.
Many compliments Anders!

Felicitations Anders pour cette nouvelle espèce au sein des Tlepolemus !
Je lirai avec attention ton article quand je l'aurai reçu.
