ID wrong
compare P. lateralis:
- antennal groove below level of eyes, rostrum produced over it;
- eyes distinctly oval, convergent on frons.
(generic / tribe level differences)
- leg colour pattern (usually constant in Anthribids)

Maybe male Toxonotus lividus?

Moved from Piesocorynus.

 
Excellent!
