Distribution. Japan (Honshu, Kyushu, Shikoku, Ryukyus, Tsushima) (as Ph. cincticollis: SCOTT 1874 , 1880; MATSUMURA 1905; MIYAMOTO 1970; ISHIHARA et al. 1974; MANNA et al. 1985; MIYAMOTO & YASUNAGA 1989; TOMOKUNI 1989; KOHNO et al. 2002; as Ph. parviceps: BLÖTE 1931 ; STEHLÍK & KERZHNER 1999; this paper), Taiwan (as Ph. cincticollis: ESAKI 1926 , MIYAMOTO 1965; as Ph. parviceps: STEHLÍK & KERZHNER 1999 ; RÉDEI et al. 2009; this paper).

According to STEHLÍK & KERZHNER (1999) and KERZHNER (2001), old records of Ph. albofasciata and Ph. cincticollis from Japan and Taiwan refer to Ph. parviceps ; that opinion was accepted also by RÉDEI et al. (2009). However, as the occurrence of Ph. cincticollis in Japan and Taiwan is confirmed in this paper, the older records require verification.
