Comments. This is an undescribed species resembling P. golconda but distinctive according to unique aedeagal characteristics. Our material has been collected from the Menominee River along the Michigan-Wisconsin border, yet on the Wisconsin side. We consider this a valid Michigan record. Formal description will follow once gravid females are obtained to permit scanning electron microscopy of mature eggs.
