竹綠虎天牛 Chlorophorus annularis

It's a very sensitive bug and got away quickly before I took a better shot.

I believe it is a 香蕉黑筒象 banana root borer (Cosmopolites sordidus). However, this one is is about 15mm in length and bigger than the standard size described in material.

紅腳異麗金龜 Anomala rubripes

Notes from @zhaomzhai :
Anomala rubripes Lin, 1996 and Anomala virens Lin, 1996 are similar in size.
But A.virens with coppery green ventral aspect (sometimes with reddish tinge)
The most obvious character is the fiery margin of pronotum in Anomala rubripes.
Which is absent in A. virens and A. russiventris.
Anomala russiventris Fairmaire, is rather smaller (1.4~1.8cm).
Anomala cupripes only occurs in China (Yunnan), Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand.
Anomala virens seems not an lowland species. At least with an altitude of higher than 200~300 meters.

Anomala virens (大綠異麗金龜)
