Easiest way to differentiate them is by looking at their gill plates. Guhuud have a large and hard convex shaped gill cover that extends into the pectoral fin. The Jio Lor on the other hand, well...look pretty much like most snapper's gill cover. ;p Guhuud tend to have a yellow tint on their fins, but not always true.
