Comments. This redescription is based on Hull’s (1947 b) original description. The information available in the original description is inadequate to clearly distinguish P. cyclops  from similar species. In Hull’s 1949 a key P. cyclops  keys out as ‘Alula near or quite as wide as the basal part of costal cell […]’ (page 108, couplet 54), which suggests that the alula is much wider than on P. aster  , although this information is not present in the original description.
