P.omoriko has brown bark cracking into squares and its cones are red-brown. P.pungens has purplish-grey bark and green cones changing to pale brown. Hope this answers your question, Alexandre. C'est bien?

And also, Picea omorika has the most specific habitus. You can see from a distance. You can see how the branches are divided from the bottom to the top. Tje lower are face down, the one in the middle are horizontal and the one's in the top are face up. And they are both beautiful on their own way.
