Image manipulation on this pic: Unsharp mask (Amount: 70%, Radius: 1.0 pixels, Threshhold: 0 levels).
Closeup of the scutellum to show the diagnostic punctation. In comatulus the scutellar punctures are shallower, denser, smaller and less distinct than those on the posteromedial region of pronotum (per McHugh's 1993 revision of the genus).
