Based on scape not elongate, I would say no to Acanthocinini.

However, the claws are divaricate, and the femora are clavate.

I can be found ?! It is probably Biasmia antennalis Hunt and Breuning. It is also possible that Biasmia antennalis is only the female Biasmia guttata which she has a tuft of hair on the antennas 5 to 7. I have only Biasmia guttata in collection so I defer to the description of Biasmia antennalis that looks a lot like guttata! Look from your side what do you think ??
And I have only one specimen of male Biasmia guttata so hard to know if what I propose is good or not concerning the possibility that antennalis is the female of guttata .....

Excellent, Jerome,

I found the paper in the Forum, and the description matches Biasmia antennalis Hunt & Breuning pretty well.

Additionally, the mesosternum is densely covered with white setae (except centrally) and at the apex of the first abdominal segment there is a narrow strip of very dense short white setae.
