It is not A. ellioti or A. plagiata. See perhaps with A. majerorum Lackerbeck, 2000 which is cited from India.

A. majerorum has different antennae, so I could exlcude, maybe Anomophysis inscripta (Waterhouse, 1884) is very near, there is a male pictured at Larry's webside from Nepal looks like the same species.

A. inscripta seems to have a quite different sexual markings on the pronotum, does your specimen have a spiny elytral apex?

This reinforces my doubt about A. inscripta as it has an angular apex. On the other hand, in the Indian species we find A. confusa which seems to have a similar relief on the pronotum...

Andreas, as you know, in most prioninae genus the antennal length can only be accurately estimated from true specimen series...
