Certainly mislabelled.... Probably from New Caledonia.

Gontran, nothing jumps out, I think it might be Hesperophanini?

Thank you Larry for your effort.
I will keep looking for a name. As I said, I don't trust the data. So it is especially difficult.

Look at the photos of Strongylurus spinosus from New Caledonia... some similarity maybe.

Yes Dan, you are on to something, the antennal proportions match well.

Might be mis-labeled,

Thanks a lot Dan and Larry for that long shot. It is indeed Strongylurus spinosus.
I had a heavy feeling something was wrong with that beetle's label. The error was made 30 years ago. I appreciate your help and great perspicacity.
