Ancistrocerus unifasciatus - male
The species' name is consistent with the female's color pattern only. Males have faint yellow stripes on urotergites II and III too, and are very similar to the closely related A. campestris males. But black urotergites IV to VI and orange tinge on urotergite I are distinctive, as are the darker wings.
Sorry for having overlooked these nice pics until now.
