I certainly agree with Apiomerini and Apiomerus. But I am a little bit sceptic about the species Vexillarius. I do not know any report southern to Panama. Besides, the antennae in Vexillarius are usually red (unicolor). In the one above, the antennae are black, with yellow tips and a yellow basal segment.

Personally I would go with Apiomerus sp. as scientific ID.

It is so nice to see spotting from Colombia here in PN...I have not seen much about Colombian Nature, Hope to see more.
