My specimen has a red pronotum, as the paralectotype of MNHN.
In the key, here, P. coomani has black pronotum.
So, I am lost...because color of pronotum is important for some Pachyteria sp. and not for P. coomani...?

D'après Morati et Huet (2004), le pronotum est de couleur variable, de rouge avec les marges noires à entièrement noir.
Personnellement, j'ai 3 individus avec le pronotum noir et 1 avec le pronotum rouge (qui semble moins fréquent).
En suivant la clé, on tombe bien sur cette espèce quelque soit la couleur du pronotum.

My other two specimens of coomani have red pronotums and that is why I listed this. There are a couple of other red species in Vietnam and just wanted to make sure what it was. Many thanks and Happy New Year.
