Possibly Mochlosoma, which is basically a Ptilodexia with a long proboscis. Do you have a closer view of the head from the side?

Head view added.

I suspect Mochlosoma. I don't have the paper where four of the five species were described and it probably isn't the fifth, so we should wait for an expert opinion.
