Sorry, no etymologies found.
More fotos, this time courtesy of cerambycidae, of me and the Guidolon sculpture done by Rodney Artiles.
I am 99\% sure it is a beetle from cerambycidae, and leaning toward something similar to Megacyllene robiniae.
Švacha is the author of several major studies, and his series of monographs on the larvae of cerambycidae (what he was collecting in India) is one of the most important works ever published on this extremely difficult and poorly known (and totally noncommercial) field.
