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.

Hello, I'm having a problem posting new threads, as the "No new Threads allowed..." is showing up on all of the forums. Is there some sort of thread limit I've exceeded?

SabineH: you have to be logged in to see "New Thread" in the right upper corner of each "forum" site. In the case of accidental logout you have to start over.
