Thx again Bayucca for your help. To me it also looks more like championi but as we are not sure I will leave it to sp. as you suggested.

Cerambycidae, Lamiinae, Colobothini, Carneades sp.. But I am not really sure if it is Carneades championi or Carneades superba, as my closest guess, though. I am sceptic about Carneades grandis due to the size and amount of spots on the pronotum. Personally I slightly would tend to Carneades championi.
Here are some links to illustrate my dilemma...
