This beetle seems to fit surprisingly well the subject of Eunidia rose by Max.
However, the beetle in photo comes from a completely different locality. It was collected in Tanzania.
I am not sure in genus, though. Might it belong to Tragocephalini, something close to Isochariesthes?

Breuning's key was wrong...the scutellum must be black.

Eunidia sulphurea m. atroapicalis Breuning, 1960

Oh, I can see now. Both the scutellum and suture are darkened. You are probably right.
Francesco Posted - 14/10/2019 : 10:14:18
Actually, the scutellum is black .
Could it be rather Eunidia apicefusca Breuning?

la sola differenza la data...1925 o 1926, la morpha l'ho lasciata dov'era ma vedo che concordi

That was really fast! Thank you both a lot!
I have prepared a few more interesting species. Will place here a bit later.

Scusa Carlo... non avevo visto la tua risposta: stavo guardando la foto mentre scrivevi... comunque bene: siamo arrivati alla stessa conclusione

It seems to me Eunidia sulphurea Aurivillius, 1926...
Carlo Posted - 28/12/2011 : 18:02:12
Eunidia sulphurea Aurivillius, 1925 (Cahiers NS N4 pag. 46)

No, it is an Eunidia without doubt: the third antennal segment is unequivocal.
I have to look for the species; however, species of East Africa are often closely related to Indian ones due to biogeographic reasons.
