how to telling the difference b/w pau ferro / rosewood

Does anyone know how to tell the difference between pau ferro and rosewood? For example, if I am looking at a used guitar in a shop, are there tell-tale signs that the fingerboard wood is one or the other - color, grain pattern, texture, etc.?
Thanks for any help...

Look at the SRV strat and the Jeff Beck strat. You should notice some difference.
