Thanks Frans
Can offer a close up if it helps. Looks like a tough subfamily.

To ID Onychiurinae...
we need a close-up of the post antennal organ (PAO). This organ is positioned transverse behind the basis of the antenna. We need to see the shape of the vesicles in the groove of the PAO. Good luck!

Thanks Frans
Is that feature visible in the others on guide under genus, like?

No, not really
These are educated guesses with which no offers of close-ups were made.
So if you do not have a close-up of the PAO. Then Onychiurus sp. is a good guess.
