Bee assassin bug

Apiomerus sp.

Description:

A very odd looking insect that looks like a robber fly (laphria) BUT the antennae do not allow that.

Habitat:

Rainforest at around 1000 m

Notes:

It has been suggested that it is in the family heteroptera mimicking a robber fly but I can ot find anything else that does that with no more information.
