Think, Antennopothyne aureomaculata Hüdepohl, 1990 (decribed from Myanmar, tribe Agapanthiini) is a match.

The colour pattern and rough elytral surface are both exceptional in the group this species belongs to, and resemble very closely certain Brentidae:

which, for their extremely hard exosceleton, are a bad prey for birds.

Long first antennal segment does not fit Dorcaschematini.
