- Commonly called auger beetles, false powderpost beetles, or horned powderpost beetles.
Identification to species can be difficult, but fortunately for you Sittichaya et al (2009) created an illustrated key for IDing species associated with South Asia.
Based on their key and visual characteristics of your specimen, my guess is that your specimen is Xylopsocus capucinus

Description: 3-5.5 mm long; 1.4-1.7 mm wide. Shape is cylindrical and similar in general appearance to other common species of the family Bostrichidae.
Distribution: throughout South and Southeast Asia from India to the Indonesian archipelago.
Hosts: apparently polyphagous attacking almost any woody plant in suitable condition.
Phenology: adults emerge mainly between May and November.
Like most false powderpost beetles, the head cannot be seen from above as it is downwardly directed and hidden by the thorax:
