Is it possible to put a name on this Stolidodere?
BioLib is mentioning aurivillii, dequaei, gahani.
Are these valid taxa? or synonyms?

All three species are valid according to Breuning (1956, Longicornia III).
I read the keys but I do not have them here... an ID to postpone.

this is probably aurivillii (type not seen but dequaei is something different and gahani is very different (lack of apical black).
I say probably as there are may be two species in this area (the common one found in Cameroon and proposed by many dealers from there and a may be a second found in Gabon, slightly different but lacking material for variability study ).
I am busy with this genus (if you have interesting material ?)

I have in collection a Stolidodere dequaei from Cameroon that match perfectly your picture.
The femora and tibiae are similar to the Gilmour's key.

this is not dequaei ! femora seem not a clear character. I have a small series of dequaei and a series too of "aurivillii" (with a reserve until not seeing the types and a doubt of a second potential sp in the area of the type locality), they are two different species !

good characters are the pronotal sculpture, the shape of the black basal patches and in a lesser view the length of the back apical patches.
