Maculosus or Asfur?

This in Angie, she is in the final week of a treatment for velvet and is ready to go back in the pool after 8 weeks.
I purchased her as a tank raised Maculosus, however with the Yellow tail and darker color that I have seen on other Macs, I am starting to believe that she may be as Asfur.
Any opinions?

Maculosis, to my knowledge an asfur does not go through a dramatic color change from juvie to adult. The fish pictured is mid color change, which can make ID difficult.

This is a adolescent mac, prior to color change.

Looks like a Mac to me. I actually think IMO, that Asfurs have a slightly different shape. A little bit more angular, with less of a pomacanthus face.
