Thanks for the suggestions
Võ Anh Tuấn & Ornithoptera80. I see the comments are deleted by Võ Anh Tuấn, but reference has few interesting points (https://www.semanticscholar.org/paper/RE...) only Scutellum matches to c. andamanensis but pronotum not matches to any of them. BTW, this paper is not validated properly by authors before being published. Pronotum pic - 3e missing; 3g & 3h are swapped. But this paper has got pretty good information. Thanks for sharing.
