Sir, check the description and you will wee that your suggestion is completely wrong!
Elytra of dravidiana is light or brown (here same as pronotal), tarsi light (here dark), etc.
The other sir has good point, if sangamash has different color specimens and punctures and hair match the description, than ok, it can be variability, but I'not in line with.

I agree.
You can confound this species only with Distenia femoralis (Boppe, 1921), which could also be its synonym but which shows black knees, tibiae and tarsi.

Do you have more specimens? (some with light color of elytra)
Can you show pronotum details (hairs)?
