From RSA, Prince Albert, XI-1995, 16 mm.
Capetoxotus rugosus Tippmann, 1959. Correct?
Thanks to Dan for suggesting the right sub-family.

Capetoxotus rugosus Tippmann, 1959 belongs to the tribe Apatophyseini (sf. Dorcasominae).
However, this may be a junior synonym of Aristogitus cylindricus Thomson, 1860 which traditionally has been attributed to Aphanasiini (sf. Cerambycinae). (cf. e.g. Peter Svacha & Lawrence 2014 Handbook of Zoology, Coleoptera vol. 3 p. 143 which is accessible on the Internet).

Thank you Anders for your informations. I obtained Svacka & Lawrence's paper. From Larry's site : Aristogitus cylindricus is probably a female ? Unfortunately my specimen is rubbed.
