This Stratiomyid was found in Ghana, near Accra. Could it be Isomerocera sp?
Thank you for your help -

You're most probably right (cf. Mason and Rozkosny, 2015 [African Invertebrates, 56(1):75-98], Hauser et al. [Suricata 5 (2017): 919-979]). Apparently the wide-spread I. quadrilineata (Fabricius, 1787)

While others can't climb, using infinite pains,
I, gravity turning to jest,
Ascend, with all ease, perpendicular planes,
Rough or smooth, just as pleases me best.
