Beatle, Roach, Hopper? - Centrodera dayi

I suspect this is actually Ce
I suspect this is actually Centrodera dayi Leech, 1963. The overall proportions and color look wrong for C. spurca. The elytra of C. dayi are broader and shorter, otherwise the two can be easily mistaken for one another. Unfortunately, the definitive key characters cannot be seen in this picture, but I would vote for C. dayi.
