16.6 mm, this one looks remarkably like several Elytrimitatrix from the New World.

Yes, I've seen them as well, but there is many transistion form to it...so it's not a "clear cut" to this specific pattern (I'm trying t find a picture but in vain ) , so that why -to me- they just fall into the intraspecific variability

Hello Sir, you seem to know the area well!
I saw very light specimens, almost no dark parts - only basally! May be Free State.

Hi Longyun,

Yes the name is correct

I've also seen also slightly different specimens, where the elytra marks are confluent, and slightly more brownish. But this variation is sympatric to the "typical morph": they come from the same region (and eco-region) and to me, they just fall into the species variation

There is only one species of this genus and it was described from the place. So it should be correct, right?
But, when searching on web I see specimens from RSA with some different colour pattern. So may be other species remain?

Thanks Pierre-Olivier, the specimen was collected at Ntendeka Wilderness, Natal Province, South Africa.

Whoa! Nice catch !

Where did you caught it ?

It might be Phelocalocera queketti (Distant, 1906)
