Difficult to be certain about the ID of this specimen. Its obvious well camouflaged to its background environment, thus concealing any obvious identifying features. A. frater is a possibility.

It didn't allow me to take shots from different angles.

Is this not a Cirphula pyrrhocnemis, maybe a female?

I think it's an a acridine rather than a catantopine Nb the pronotum shape. The pronotum of Cirphula is parallel sided with cross groves. To confirm we would need to check the prosternal process.
