Poecilocryptus nigromaculatus

Poecilocryptus nigromaculatus can be distinguished from Poecilocryptus galliphagus by the hind tibiae being entirely yellow – the latter species has the hind tibiae marked apically black. Poecilocryptus nigripectus is similarly coloured but the black markings on the body largely differ to the two aformentioned species and also has antennae marked with a yellow subapical pale band.
