Not beetles. These are shield bugs.

Possibly a species of Mictis maybe Mictis caja

Mictis caja looks plausible. In the first picture one bug has much fatter hind legs than the other. Presumably this is the male as per the description.

The bug with the fatter hind legs is the male, the other is female.

Amorbus sp looks good. Possibly Amorbus alternatus?

So far we have been grouping all Amorbus sp. together. It would need someone with Kim's expertise, and some spare time, to classify them to species.
