This is now Ceresium elongatithorax (Hayashi, 1979) since Holzschuh recently transferred it from the genus Examnes.
Occurs in W. Malaysia and is rather common in Sabah, too.

Thank you Dan.
I have many Ceresium from Sabah and this one is bigger than the others.
Now I need to translate the last paper by C. Holzschuh !

Ceresium cribrum is an extremely large species compared to the others. (larger than elongatithorax).
I have many Ceresium from Sabah which Holzschuh has described, but not all of them. There are some erroneous records from Borneo, too. Even with paratypes and other material which Holzschuh has identified for me, it is extremely difficult to identify some species.
Besides what he has described, I have perhaps 5 (or more) species (and many specimens in total) which are either new, or a species described from elsewhere.
I find Ceresium to be interesting, however, there is not enough time to study them. I honestly believe there could be another 10 or 20 new Ceresium in Borneo.
