In the UPF (inside the GREEN line) white markings are visible, which in M. tessellum are in most individuals four (and very rarely up to six), while in Favria cribrellum there are in most individuals six (and rarely as few as five). The white markings of the UPF, surrounded by the RED line, are more in F. cribrellum and less in M. tessellum.
