Diagnosis. P. antiquadraria   is almost identical to P. subquadraria ( Inoue, 1976)   externally, but their male genitalia are quite different. For example, the distal half of the valva is comparatively narrower in P. antiquadraria   , and the costal extension is situated mesally on the valva in the former species, but arises distally in the latter. In addition, P. antiquadraria   has the typical very broad socii, but which are narrow and tapering in P. subquadraria   and P. sinuspinae   sp. nov. The costal extension is not tapering or acute, and is sometimes slightly ramose. Comparisons with P. proquadraria ( Inoue, 1976)   are summarized under that species. The male eighth sternite is distinguished by two large lateral processes, which are only basally curved, the other parts being almost straight, tapering and bearing two to seven small spines. The medial margin between the two lateral processes is strongly sclerotized and concave. In the female genitalia, the triangular medial part of the lamella antevaginalis is also characteristic.

Distribution. China (Zhejiang, Jiangxi, Hunan, Fujian, Taiwan, Guangdong, Hainan, Guangxi, Yunnan, Tibet), Japan, India, Bhutan, Thailand.

Remarks. P. antiquadraria   is sympatric with T. immissaria   . Both species are widely distributed in South China, and occupy most of the collection in IZCAS.
