A Distenia species?
From Mexico; 11 and 13 mm.

Yes, though the name of these American Distenia has been changed in Elytrimitatrix.
There are several species with a similar pattern, but your specimens, at least the one below, seem to be E. pubescens Santos-Silva & Hovore, 2008, an endemic Mexican species.
Are both coming from the same locality?

I have seen the numerous specimens which form the genus but don't have any experience with them. Yes, both have been collected in the same place (Oaxaca).

The typical locality of this species is the other coast of Mexico (Hidalgo), but it is the only one that seems to correspond to your specimens.

I think it could be Elytrimitatrix curoei Santos-Silva & Le Tirant 2016.

Pierre... please provide localities for Mexican species. It is very useful, because some species are known only from the west side (i.e State of Jalisco) and some are known only from the east (state of Veracruz).

The genus Novantinoe must also be checked.

Despite the large number of species of Disteniini recently described in the last 10-15 years, there are probably new species still remaining in Mexico and Central America.

To make it easier to compare photographs, I like to see photographs with the head of the specimen at the top of the page. It would be helpful. If you can not match a photo to a species illustrated on the web site of American Cerambycidae, please consider contacting Santos-Silva. He is usually very helpful.

Thanks to both of you for coming back on this (a bit old...) topic! Dan, I have made some new and - hopefully - better photos. Maybe they will help.

All in all I have 4 specimen. I poste 4 separate topics: Oaxaca 1, 2, 3 and 4.

Hi Pierre...
Your original pictures were posted 2 years before I joined the Forum.

I will have to study them, although these photos are much better and anyone else is welcome to identify them.
