Etymology.

The species epithet refers to the type locality; noun.

Diagnosis.

This species resembles P. lizhuang  Zhao & Li, sp. n. (Figs 12-15) but can be distinguished by following characters: bulb curved dorso-distally (arrow in Figure 21B) (bulb curved dorso-medially in P. lizhuang  Zhao & Li, sp. n.), smaller Esl/El ratio (0.51-0.55, n = 5, mean: 0.53, Suppl. material 1: Figure S9) (larger Esl/El ratio 0.63-0.67, n = 6, mean: 0.65 in P. lizhuang  Zhao & Li, sp. n.), and larger El/Bl ratio (1.45-1.54, n = 5, mean: 1.49, Suppl. material 1: Figure S9) (smaller El/Bl ratio 1.23-1.29, n = 6, mean: 1.27 in P. lizhuang  Zhao & Li, sp. n.).

Description.

Male (holotype): Total length 1.33. Carapace 0.54 long, 0.53 wide. Abdomen 0.79 long, 0.68 wide. Carapace light brown (Figure 22A). Six eyes ringed with black, clypeus height 0.08, ocular quadrangle 0.16 wide (Figure 22A). Chelicerae, legs, labium, and endites light yellow. Sternum light brown. Leg measurements: I 4.55 (1.31, 0.22, 1.45, 0.94, 0.63); II 3.86 (1.13, 0.22, 1.19, 0.75, 0.57); III 2.93 (0.85, 0.20, 0.90, 0.53, 0.45); IV 3.34 (1.06, 0.22, 0.95, 0.63, 0.48). Abdomen grey with sparse, long setae (Figure 22A).

Palp: Tibia 3.2 times longer than patella, cymbium 2.1 times longer than tibia, cymbial apophysis approximately cone-shaped (Figs 21A, 22C); bulb strongly protruding ventro-subdistally (Figure 22D) and curved dorso-distally (arrow in Figure 22D); spiral ridge brown (Figure 22B), El/Bl ratio 1.54 (Figure 22D), and Esl/El ratio 0.52 (Figure 22D).

Female: Total length 1.33. Carapace 1.53 long, 0.50 wide. Abdomen 0.80 long, 0.67 wide. Coloration as in male (Figure 23 A–B). Six eyes, well developed, clypeus height 0.09, ocular quadrangle 0.17 wide (Figure 23A).

Insemination duct as wide as receptacle (Figure 23C); receptacle comma-shaped with a globular end (Figure 23C).

Variation.

In 4♂ paratypes: El/Bl ratio 1.45-1.50, Esl/El ratio 0.51-0.55.
