I have problem to determine this genus (RDC, Tshopo region, 2016)
It recalls Sudreana but seems obvioulsly not.
May be a Margites, but which ?

s'il n'y pas de solution c'est qu'il n'y a pas de problème ! akuna matata ....

If I understand Adlbauer 2006 correctly, then this should key out to Margites mussardi Lepesme & Breuning, 1956 ?

I agree with you Riana.
Seems to fit with Margites and probably a close species to mussardi.
I have no specimen of it to compare, few details differ as the pubescence of the pronotum and less general pubescence. I have a second specimen (female) that fit very well with this male. It is very far from his distribution.

Yes, confirmed: Margites mussardi Lepesme & Breuning, 1956. The description fits very well with your beetle.
Citations by Adlbauer from western Africa: Liberia, Ivory Coast. The specimen from my collection come from Cameroon and Gabon. The species seems to be widespread in many parts of the african continent.
