One more creature from Vietnam. In my opinion, it is Cacia (Corethrophora) sp.
S Vietnam, Bin`Fyok prov., ~11mm. I ask to emendate my determination if it is possible, please.

It is a Cacia, but of the subgenus Ipocregyes.
Coreothrophora (there are some species in the Forum) should differ only in the much more enlarged apex of the antennomere III (actually, only Breuning noticed such difference!). However, it has a nearly exclusive Philippine distribution.
By considered the species quoted from Vietnam by Lamiaires, this specimen belongs to none. I am still looking for.

Thanks! Well, that I have determined a genus properly. To me for the first time such beetle has come to hands.

By reading again keys and descriptions, your beetle is similar to C. cephalotes from Vietnam and C. albovariegata from Cambodia. But it corresponds to neither of them, since its white pattern is more extensive.
Unfortunately, I do not know personally these species, which, nevertheless, might also be varieties of only one.
If you like, I can send copy of their descriptions (in French).

Concerning the identification of the subgenus, I am very doubtful about the real value of these taxa: some species are even keyed in both subgenera...

Thank a lot! Yes, I would be glad to reed these descriptions. In French is well (I have, unfortunately, greater problems with German and, consequently, with Breuning`s articles)

By using Rondon & Breuning (1970, Lamiines du Laos), your species is extremely similar to C. (Ipocregyes) cephaliodes Breuning, 1968.
If all these species are actually synonyms among them, the question is still open...

Correct name is Cacia (Ipocregyes) cephaloides Breuning, 1968.
