Beetle - Heterocerus mollinus

Beetle - Heterocerus mollinus

I believe this is in the genus Lapsus. I have a couple of other photos of this beetle that were ID'd to Lapsus, but this image, just shot, has better lighting on it. Any species for it? Thanks.

Moved from Lapsus.

Hard to tell
It doesn't look like Heterocerus fenestratus (synonym of the only species of Lapsus Pacheco). Looks more like Heterocerus mollinus.

 
thanks, Jonas
you can ask for other angles, i guess...
