It is 10 mm.

Ok I'll look in the sub genus Peritragopsis, maybe it's about Chariesthes (Peritragopsis) ficivora but it's curious ??
It looks a lot like the P maculosa !
He does not even have a tiny scar on the scape ?

I looked again, and I could not see one, there is a slight indentation apically on the underside, but based on other species with a cicatrix,
I would say no.

Ok ! your specimen is Chariesthes (Peritragopsis) ficivora Pascoe but look the description for more assurance ..... Very similar to some specimen P sofala with which he is confused....check with the description anyway to be sure
