Remarks. The Iranian population of P. co f f e ae (Pourjam et al. 1997) shows wide intraspecific variation as mentioned by Taylor & Jenkins 1957, Loof 1960, Román & Hirschmann 1969 and Rashid & Khan 1976. It has wide variation in the shape of the spermatheca (rounded, oval to somewhat rectangular and filled with rounded sperms), and tail (hemispherical, smooth terminus, and broadly rounded to somewhat truncate or indented), and is similar in most taxonomic characters and measurements to the Iranian population of P. loosi (Pourjam et al. 1997)   . Species identification is based on c ´, tail shape and body width at the level of phasmid (PBW).
