Trictenomidae, Trictenotoma thomsoni. Deyrolle (1875).

Posted 1 Feb. 2020. Found 28 Dec. 2019. Keningau. The basic color of this beetle is black. The body is slightly flattened, and it is covered with thick greyish-yellow hairs. Beware of it powerful mandible. Underside is grey in color. Found this during daytime in an area where rubber trees are cut down. Looks very similar to Long Horned Beetle to me.  I discovered minor damaged on it right wing as seen in my photo.
