This is a species that looks a lot like Pseudotragischus venus ! But it's not P venus !!! I will have to look elsewhere .......
Can be a new species ?? But I will look in other similar genres!

At first look if it is the genus Pseudotragiscus, which seems most likely, or Falsotragiscus with its only species holdhausi, but it is not the insect here!
Also look at the genus Spilotragus, which with Falsotragiscus would be good to redefine as both are not very distinguishable.
Or also the genus Paraspilotragus?

Pseudotragiscus 1 sp: venus
Falsotragischus 1 sp holdhausi
Spilotragus 7 sp: S. clarkei, which in my opinion is the same thing as S. mourgliai and maybe even the same thing as Falsotragiscus holdhausi (which was classified within the original Spilotragus!)? Everything is a question of stains .... I do not see anything consistent in the descriptions? But we should see the types.
  guttatus (Jordan)
  Ornatus (Gahan)
  variabilis Breuning
  xanthus Jordan

I hope you have a little guided?
