Pour moi c'est un Paramacrotoma, sans doute P. scabridorsis (White, 1853).

I agree that it can be P. scabridorsis (White, 1853). but one must be careful with SA material (badly known, 3 very characteristic species recently described) without a close examination.
Anyway, nice catching.

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