Ok it is that family. But what is it that species (Polietes : meridionalis or domitor or lardarius or...) ?

it looks like there is a yellowish-white to golden-yellow sheen in the anterior part of the head. So is it Polietes meridionalis ??

Yes, it's likely a P. meridionalis - additionally to the golden dusted face I think I see a yellowish anterior spiracle.
