This beetle looks very much like Nericonia trifasciata Pascoe, 1869.
As much as I can find, N. trifasciata should be a Malayan species (Borneo). But this one comes from North Luzon, Philippines.
I saw also other specimens sold from Philippines.
Length 7.5 mm.

I have a bad photo of the holotype of N. trifasciata from the BMNH.

This specimen from Luzon is similar, but I believe they are different.

It is necessary to get a better photo of the holotype. In the holotype photo, the apical region of the elytra is all black.

The tips of elytra are black also in my specimen. This is the play of reflections that leaves the impression of grayish color in the photo. Besides, the apical part is covered with longer scarce light bristles which deepen the impression.

May be Nericonia luzonensis.
The picture I have shows slightly more grey markings on the elytra but they could be variable.
