Hi, I think it's a male Rhinophora lepida.

Yes, that is the first impression, but I disagree.The calypter is too large. Moreover, it is clearly a male (long pulvilli, narrow vertex) and male Rhinophora would have grey spots on tergites.
The only genus that makes sense is Loewia. But I would like to see the head in profile to be more sure.

Thanks a lot, Theo - seems, I have to clean up my Rhinophoridae collection in search of Loewia!

Loewia looks good.
