Material examined.

Holotype ♂ ( IZCAS): China, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Baise Prefecture, Pingguo County, Xingning Village, Xiushui Cave, T: 24°C, RH: 90%, 23°34.048'N, 107°40.777'E, 285 m, 3.VIII.2009, C. Wang and Z. Yao leg. Paratypes: 1♂ and 4♀ ( IZCAS), same data as holotype. 5♂ and 5♀ (molecular vouchers, IZCAS), same data as holotype.

Diagnosis.

This species resembles P. zhewang  (see Figs 28-30 and Chen and Zhu 2009: 1709, figure 3 A–D, F–L, O–Q) but can be differentiated by following characters: cymbial apophysis long (Figure 24A) (cymbial apophysis very short in P. zhewang  ) and smaller Esl/El ratio (0.50-0.52, n = 5, mean: 0.51, Suppl. material 1: Figure S10) (larger Esl/El ratio 058-0.63, n = 4, mean: 0.60 in P. zhewang  ).

Description.

Male palp: Embolus bent (Figure 24 A–D), El/Bl ratio 1.58-1.73 (n = 5, Suppl. material 1: Figure S10), and Esl/El ratio 0.50-0.52 (n = 5, Suppl. material 1: Figure S10). For more detailed descriptions, see Wang and Li (2016).
