For the female, the head showing a cephalic trituberculate carina; with conical, similar in size tubercles; middle tubercle slightly more frontally projected than lateral tubercles; frons with almost effaced to effaced punctures; pronotal sculpture completely smooth, with almost effaced to effaced punctures; pronotal process trituberculate, with posterior concavity; with dentiform middle tubercle, strongly more developed and projected frontally than lateral tubercles; carinate or rounded lateral tubercles; posterior pronotal midline almost completely effaced.

After having described P. zoque ( Moctezuma & Halffter 2017) , the following paratypes were deposited by us in additional collections: CEMT: 5 ♂♂, 5 ♀♀; CDC: 5 ♂♂, 5 ♀♀; CMNC: 1 ♂, 1 ♀; CPFA: 6 ♂♂, 6 ♀♀; UVGC: 1 ♂, 1 ♀. These paratypes were previously housed at VMC (see the full list of paratypes in Moctezuma & Halffter 2017).
