Islamabad, NARC, 1 ♀, 05.vii.2011, Falak Naz (NIM). Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Swat, Maidam , 1 ♀, 07.viii.1987, L. A. Abro ( PMNH)  .

Measurements. Male (n=3): TL= 18.7 mm, HW= 3.3 mm, PL= 3.5 mm, PW= 3.4 mm, EL= 10.6 mm, EW= 3.5 mm. Ratios PL/PW= 1.02, HW/PW= 0.95 and EL/EW= 3.05

Female (n=1): TL= 18.1 mm, HW= 3.4 mm, PL= 3.5 mm, PW= 3.4 mm, EL= 10.7 mm, EW= 3.5 mm. Ratios PL/PW= 1.02, HW/PW= 0.96 and EL/EW= 3.05

Diagnosis: Head yellowish with inverted “Y” shaped black mark at frons. Antenna yellowish to brown terminally. Pronotum black with two longitudinal yellow stripes. Elytra black with raised striae, Humeral marks yellow. Median elytral stripe with undulated margins from 2nd elytral stria to half of 8th interval. Apical elytral band yellow variable some time very narrow. Elytral epiplura black. Legs yellowish, femur terminal ends (knee) black.

Head with black mark, most of thorax and elytra black. Differences between them include head with “Y” shaped black mark in P. (S.) consularis  while is oblong-shaped in P. (S.) javanus  ; elytral transverse median spot is wide and serrated in P. (S.) consularis  while is wavy and narrow in P. (S.) javanus  .
