Both P. (Sinophthalmus) and C. (Giitonides) have micropubescet arista. Still you are right with C.

Maybe you are even right with C. (G.) perspicax, still unrecorded from Canary Islands, but note that there are more than ten species of C. (G.) in Africa - e. g. C.(G.) apidoxenus, described from Senegal...
