Dear Carlos,
We believe we have correctly identified your Scarab Beetle as
Gymnetis chalcipes, by first matching your individual to an image on Ben’s Beetle Breeding Pages.  We also found images on the Butterflies and Beetles of Argentina.

Dear Daniel,
Thanks for your prompt response,  following the links you gave me. I found it as the litigiosa variant of the chalcipes.

Kind Regards!
Have a nice weekend.
