Neoitamus vs Pamponerus

Hi,

Can someone post a summary of differences to look out for to distinguish Neoitamus from Pamponerus? They look pretty similar to me!

Thanks
Mike

Pamponerus

Pamponerus is a species of coastal dunes in the west of the country and it has two-coloured wings. They are clear at the basal half, but dark over the rest. They are also a bit larger and darker than Neoitamus. Neoitamus' wings are all clear.
