Remarks. A new species to the Bulgarian fauna. Although no male has been collected, the characteristic color pattern (see Fig. 1) leaves no doubt about the identity of the specimens. At present, the three localities listed above mark the easternmost occurrence of P. collaris , the nearest record being in Serbia, some 60–70 km off the Bulgarian border ( Makarov et al. 2004).
