Sumitrosis inaequalis or S. rosea?

Moved from ID Request.

definitely on the pale side

S. rosea has pale antennae
S. inaequalis' are dark

Thanks, John....
I noted that in some of the reference material, but then checked various images of each here on BG and saw that often there wasn't much difference in pale vs dark between the two species. This individual isn't really dark or pale, but somewhere in between, so I am uncertain and need a more expert opinion.
