RD Congo, Nord Kivu
L'image est pas très bonne mais dans quel genre dois-je chercher à placer ces pièces détachées
C'est le premier Disteniidae de ma collection, semble pas très commun

s'il n'y pas de solution c'est qu'il n'y a pas de problème ! akuna matata ....

Looks like Saphanodes juheli Adlbauer, 2007, or something close.

following Villiers paper, the elytra markings and pronotum drawing, it fit well with mertensi but there is a groove on the head, not deep (Villiers stated that mertensi doesn't have real groove but also supposed it may be subject of variation). It is much probably Saphanodes mertensi (the type, the only knwon specimen ?, is without precise locality in RDC)

Saphanodes mertensi (Lepesme, 1948) pour le nom complet.
