Carabidae, Harpalinae, Eudema angulatus. The only one with these dispatched/"angulated" yellow markings. All your mentioned beetles only have single spots.

This one is a bit confusing. Mine does look just like yours and the one in Keith's link but if you search Craspedophorus sp. and Panageus sp., you get some of the same looking insects. There is a few more matches with Craspedophorus sp. so I'm guessing that's more likely it, but Panageus is also possible.

thanks Keith. Think I'll go with the yellow spotted ground beetle. The one in the link seems like quite a good match. Dan, did you look at Keith's link?

Hmm Dan, The markings look the same, though the yellow is more prominent in this one, but the body is much more round here. Could be a difference between Thailand and India. Anyway definitely on the right track.

Ground Beetle, Family:Carabidae. I've found a couple of internet sources that identify similar beetles as Craspedohorus sp. and referto them as Yellow-spotted Ground Beetles.
