Welcome Zhu!
I agree with Gerard, but it it not easy to recognise this species.
This specimen is characterised by elytra fairly long, apically truncated, yellow with large marginal band and narrow sutural margin black; pronotum yellow with 3 black, more or less united, spots.
I think that the best choice is Odontocera molorchoides (White, 1855).

Thanks Dr. Gerard CHEMIN for so enthusiastic to teach me and Dr. Vitali always give the perfect answer.
The image looks so different when it turns perpendicularly. My colleague first identify it as
O. javieri. And I stupidly deny it. As in deed the pronotum looks so long so thin.
Many thanks
