Remarks. The titillator of the type specimen is broken. Therefore in the original description a part of the titillator was drawn from the dorsal position, therefore it is seen with straight apical arms. Salman (1978) gave its whole titillator shape from dorsal position as well. Actually, the titillator of this species is very similar to that of P. taurica  with strongly downcurved apical arms. This species is widespread in east Anatolia.
