Chioides sp., I think it is Chioides albofasciatus.

Didn't even see that page in the guide book. I believe it is Chiodes catillus

I have put the focus on the white stripe which looks, according to BOA, not as sharpedly marked in Catillus than in Albofasciatus.

But looking at other pictures on the web there are actually some which are looking like yours that are IDed as Catillus. I do not know how accurate the geographical ranges are that are written in funet or BOA. On the NABA page there is also a Catillus like yours. So my thinking might be completely wrong, in this case, sorry. But at least you have a hint for the genus...
Maybe Ricardo has the ultimate clue!
