Question How do you determine the gender of a pleco?

Normally when people ask how to determine the gender of a pleco the most common answer would be to see if that piece has odontodes (a.k.a chew chew in our local context). However, I think this is not a very accurate answer because sometimes during transportation or when it is at a particular time of the season they tend to shed off their odontodes hence what you see at the LFS is practically a bald fish. Although checking the odontodes is a good way to determine the gender of plecs are there any other ways you all use when selection?
