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?

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.

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

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

Actually, the scutellum is black .
Could it be rather Eunidia apicefusca Breuning?

Oh, I can see now. Both the scutellum and suture are darkened. You are probably right.

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