yes, only known from Ivory Coast

Thank you for your help!

Probably a new country record.

It is not Protonarthron species with this pronotum.
It's an Acmocerini : Acmocera joveri Lepesme & Breuning, 1952
jplami Posted - 18/12/2017 : 20:27:49
Key of Protonarthron in Breuning,1940:532 give P. diabolicum Thomson, 1857.
But I think it's species near this one.

It looks like Acmocerini but with these antennae, perhaps it's Protonarthrini. I don't know all genus and species of this little tribe.
Kungmjolon Posted - 10/11/2017 : 11:30:06
Right! The body and pattern looks very much like an Acmocera, but the antenna does'nt. Quite confusing...

Doesn't look quite right to me for the Acmocera genus. The third antennal segment seems rather thick.

Looks different... right conjux

Thank you! I agree on Acmocera and that conjux looks much like my specimen, but the antenna confuses me. I have not seen any conjux with those antenna. The antenna are pretty thick with lots of hair. I can't find any conjux which has the same type of hair, so maybe it is a similar looking species?
Vitali Posted - 09/11/2017 : 10:39:09
This should be Acmocera, probably a morph of A. conjux.
A variable species, some photos in this Forum can be similar.
