Max, you may well be right in thinking this is Talaurinus kirbii. But I will call it T. rugifer for now, if only because it is probably the same as others I have given that name in the ALCW. The two spp. are similar and I would need to see several specimens from the region and compare them before deciding which it is. Do you have more shots of this one but vertically from above?

Update. Identification changed to T. kirbii, on basis that a separate sighting matches that species rather than T. rugifer.
