Lexiphanes - great!
Great Margarethe. I get these in several species (one common on Polygonum) here in Peru and I didn´t know what they were. Now I do, thanks!

 
My pleasure
- so you are in South America - I thought you were in Holland!

Shawn Clark says:
"The beetle belongs to the cryptocephaline genus Lexiphanes Gistel, but I prefer not to attempt a species identification without seeing an actual specimen rather than a mere photograph"
Thank you, Eric Eaton, for finding outside expertise!

That one looks interesting!
No idea even on subfamily, on the other hand . . .

 
I kept a lot of specimen
so if anyone is interested .. let me know
