I doubt that it is a Dere sp. Pronotum and elytra are too narrow. Dere sometimes (maybe always) have apices of elytra externally spinose, at least in the species I have. Perhaps your specimen has that feature... I can't tell. Dere usually have much more clavate femora, and overall, their body is somewhat flattened. Perhaps it is a related genus.

This is a different view, which seems to exhibit some of the features you mentioned.

Ok with Dan, it does'nt look like a Dere sp. , I "feel" it is a Tillomorphini.

Here is Bicon sanguineus from Sabah. The specimen from Perak is Tillomorphini, but I don't know the species from Sumatra, West Malaysia, Laos, etc. There are only a small number of genera described.
Is it a Bicon? Well, I don't know, but it is similar.

By seeing the list of Malaysian species, if it is a Bicon sp. , it should be a new one, no ? I do not know more.

Bicon sanguineus and luctuosus are very similar in body shape.
They are somewhat flattened. The Perak specimen looks more cylindrical. I hope somebody can tell us more
