Rondibilis spinosula (Pascoe, 1860) is a species from Indonesia and P.New Guinea. I do not know if it exists in south India.

I think it is better first to check Indian species of the genus:

- Rondibilis barwayensis (Breuning, 1958) from Madhya Pradesh (closer area from south India)
- Rondibilis bispinosa Thomson, 1857 from "India " too.
- may be also widespread species as Rondibilis lineaticollis (Pic, 1922)

As I answer you in a private mail, many Rondibilis species have exactly the same kind of spots and spines on elytra, and I am unable to separate them on picture.
