It does have the red stripes, although showed poorly in the pictures. Thank you very much for helping! I really appreciate it :D
This beetle is from the genus Chrysochroa.Thailand has C. rajah with a longitudinal red stripe along the elytra and red patches on the pronotum. I can almost see the red striped but they are almost invisible from this (frontal) angle. http://www.malaeng.com/blog/?p=2161Some images lack the red stripes so I assume this species to be C. rajah. http://insects.wikia.com/wiki/Chrysochro...
