Achthophora sp. maybe undescribed or maybe tristis, but A. tristis has type locality in the Philippines.
I have not seen the type of A. tristis, so.. more study is required.
The species you have is not rare.

Dear Dan, this one seems to me very different from A. tristis that I've in my collection
elytra are densely covered of yellow spot
antenna are shorter
the third antenna's segment is totally covered by long and dense hairs
the insect is from Borneo, I'm sure.

It's not A. sandakana, although they are a little similar. I can post of a photo of A. sandakana tonight.

Carlo, is your A. tristis from the Philippines? Can you post a picture of it?

I know I made a mistake here. Your specimen is A. sandakana as Xaurus suggested, and I post a photo of a female from my collection.
The colors are slightly different, perhaps due to the camera flash or some other reason. But, there is another species in Northern Borneo which I still can't identify.

Hello I go back up this post to show you these two animals of Borneo. If somebody would have a series to see if males and females always have this aspect.

Here are the ones I have:

top row would be A. sandakana

2nd row... well, maybe they are close to A. tristis, but honestly I am not sure.
Note how they have a good bit of variation, especially the 3rd one in the 2nd row.

My previous post contained only specimens from Sabah. I have none from elsewhere in Borneo.

Thank you Dan, the type looks like the first series.
Would you have the description or the publication?
