Hi Angeline,
We thought Eric might be more help with the beetle. I thought it might be a Cerambycid, one of the Long-Horned Borers, but Eric is not convinced. Hope that helps.

    This is indeed a cerambycid beetle, namely Eyryphagus lundii. At least, the photo of “Beetles of Thailand” by Ek Amnuay is exactly the same. It must be a male, as the females show a dark tip of the elytra.
    The broad and flat head and the widely separated eyes are rather characteristic of this genus. The species is known from India, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Malaysia.

      Thanks so much for taking the time to help identify some of the unidentified beetles we had posted from Thailand.
