It should belong to Pseudaeolesthes or to Dymasius.
Very difficult to identify a species with the descriptions by Gressitt & Rondon.

OK, thanks.
So the best way is waiting for someone to do a revision?

Oh yes Nalslan, there is a big hope for revision, but I must suppose nobody can do this in near furture, in asian Cerambycini there are to much confusions esp. on genus level.
I think I have a similar or same sps from Yunnan too at home, I'll check later

Naslan, could you tell me if the ventral side of the femora has a longitudinal ridge like Derolus?

Well, Francesco, I don't see any ridge on either fermur or tibia.

It belongs to Pseudaeolesthes.
Presently, I am revising these genera and the paper is almost ready.
The identity of the genera is clear and shows no difficulties, but nearly all species must be moved.
Unfortunately, Gressitt described several species basing himself on wrong characters and single specimens. Consequently, the definition of the genera is clear, but the position of some Gressitt's species is still unclear.

In my opinion, this is Pseudaeolesthes aureopilosa (Gressitt & Rondon, 1970).
The revision - finally published! - is available here.
