Yes I considered this but it didn't quite match up for me. Hmmm.

very similar to C. superba, but in some features different, probably a new sps of this genus, I have never caught this sps in Vietnam.

Still unsure if it is Callomecyna superba.
Doesn't look quite right, I can take some different photos if that helps.

Hi there.
I have just thoroughly examined the specimen and it fits perfectly with C. leehsuehae. Perhaps a new locality for this species?

Your specimen has less white hairs on elytra...You should contact Yamasako & Chou.
If your ID is right, Vietnam is a new locality.
