Question 2: if no expert will show him/herself, I might suggest some names:
002 = muelleri, red margins or not.
003 = excentricus
004 = excentricus
005 = excentricus
007 = elatus
The name "albispathus" for your Chinese species should read albus
One other thing: your site was extraordinarily slow, both the opening of
individual pages as well as the appearing of photos.
