Guizhou ~1400, 16 mm

The closest I can found for it is the no. 1346, Similonedine brunniofasciata Hua 1992, on the China Iconography book.
I went to find the original description, I found it looks kind of different: the description says the brown band is composed of brown hairs, but I could not see hairs on my specimen.

Thank you Francesco, Rhodopina hitted my mind too, but I only saw a Rhodopina once in person.
My specimen has small spines on inner end of 4 to 7 antennomeres, I wonder is this the case for Rhodopina?
Thanks.

Tam Dao, VI.2011, 20.5 mm

I do not really know. I have only got this specimen from Vietnam, evidently congeneric to yours.
Actually, the antennomeres are spined in my specimen as well.
It is a female, so I identified it as Rhodopina.. But your specimen is a male; thus, it is not Rhodopina definitely.
I think that your identification is correct.
According to me, only the whitish pubescence is made with hair.

According to Lamiaires du Monde (to the descriptor as well?), this genus belongs to Desmiphorini... honestly, I do not see a so great resemblance with Nedine (below). I think the tribal attribution is wrong.

Thanks!!! Let me try to find somebody to check my specimens against the holotype.

Finally, I have the photo of the type (Many thanks to Guiqiang Huang and his friend). I think there beetles of Fancesco and mine are Similonedine brunniofasciata indeed.

Update: sorry guys, I have to take this photo down because of my mis-understanding on the use of this photo. .

is Similonedine a synonym of Rhodopina?

I do not think that somebody proposed this synonymy; in all cases, I do not think so since the male antennae have a different structure.
Currently, this genus belongs to Demiphorini, but I think that this systematic position is wrong: it should be transferred to Rhodopinini... even if this tribe is valid.
