what's about Mimodorcadion indicum (Gučrin-Meneville, 1844), but I haven't seen the type.

I've seen a similar specimen (image attached) Identified as Dorcadion indicum in National Pusa Collections, New Delhi (specimen is from old collection of British India)...I think specimen agrees on the identity...

Pronotum and elytral stripes are different... In the first specimen, the pronotum is evenly rounded, which is not the case with the second specimen. And regarding elytral stripes, they converge inward in the second specimen.
