So E.lundi could have black spots on elytrae as well? I have similar male of E.lundii but without any spots...

The black area on the elytra can vary a lot in all Euryphagus items. Both lundii (Fabr.) and maxillosus (Olivier) may show an apex totally red, or completely black, with all possible intermediate stages
By the way, the colour of the legs also tends to vary. It seems that the most stable colour character is the pronotal disc: red in lundii, with a large black spot in maxillosus.

Euryphagus maxillosus (Olivier) is a species from Philippines, which do not occur in Laos; but Euryphagus miniatus (Fairmaire, 1904), from Laos too, has a black spot on elytra, not touching the apex.
