I can't name this one
Based on the head it seems like it should belong in Sticholotidinae, but 5mm is double the size of most species in that subfamily. I can't think of a genus that has that pronotum shape in combination with a narrow body and a fairly hemispherical body form.

And most importantly it is completely hairless on the pronotum and elytra? That's strange.
