Je profite de l'accès à cette partie du forum pour vous soumettre une autre capture du Fujien qui selon moi serait nouvelle.
J'ai vérifié l'ensemble des Callidini potentiel de chine et pays voisins et aucun ne colle à cette bête.
Globalement il est proche du genre Ropalopus mais je trouve que la ponctuation et la forme du pronotum renvoi à un genre différent.
Il est possible que je me trompe, aussi je souhaiterai avoir votre avis.

Thanks Xaurus and mister Xavier.
Like you I see the side of pronotum more rugulose than the disc.
In first we can let Ropalopus ruber in the title.

I have a female too, from Zheijang, with a maybe "microrugulose punctuation at sides" only, there is maybe a error in the key.

I compare totaly the gressitt description, except the pronotal vermiculation and the width of the head, there's a lot of common character (scutellum, elytra, pronotum and antenna) . It's maybe a female of ruber then.
Also, Gressit dont speak about the vermiculation in the original description. A mistake in the key?

Many Thanks for you answer.
To complete my post, for me it's a male (not sure) and the size is 15 mm. I think it's not ruber because Gressit say about it: "pronotum subtransversely vermiculate. sutural angle of elytra acute". This specimen have a smooth and shiny pronotum with a very fine and sparse punctuation. But I've never seen a ruber too.

whats about Ropalopus ruber (Gressitt)
Xavier Posted - 29/08/2018 : 23:47:43
We do not see the shape of the pronotum, because of antennas...
Olivier, quelle est la longueur de ce spécimen ?

It can be some Paraxylocrius probably.
