Yes, Thylactus.

Maybe it is T. sumatrensis Hudepohl which I have seen from Sumatra and Borneo. I'll see if I can confirm later.

I don't know the size of the specimen in the photograph, but it looks the same as a specimen of T. sumatrensis that I have from Sumatra.

Thanks a lot, Dan.

I have no specimen in this case, but my estimate of this species will be about 10mm.

Wow, that is very short. T. sumatrensis is 30mm or more. Thylactus spp. are usually 20 - 35 mm. I really do believe your specimen is T. sumatrensis and is probably over 25mm.

The picture above is T. sumatrensis, in my opinion. First, I have a specimen from West Sumatra identified by Hudepohl. I have one specimen from Sabah (here attached). The pubescence on the elytra is a shimmering brown, which changes reflections depending upon the angle of light.

In a paper being prepared, Vives and I are documenting some new records from Borneo. This will likely be included. I do not plan to include the record for Perak. I think it would be important and proper if Loong Fah would publish his records.
