Description: See Tilmans, F. Willemse & L. Willemse (1989).

Distribution ( Fig. 186 View FIGURES 185–186 ): As far known the species occurs on the peninsula of Akti (Athos), part of the Khalkidiki Peninsula in Northern Greece.

Remarks: Though the authors (Tilmans, F. Willemse & L. Willemse 1989) have difficulties to define the closest relatives of this species, according to the available morphological description and figures P. athos is probably closely related to P. sureyanus subgroup. The species is rather similar to P. sureyanus by the shape of male cerci and number of stridulatory pegs, yet differing by the short male subgenital plate and, to some extent, by the female lamella.

Using the synapomorphies, shared by this species and P. sureyanus , we tentatively place the species under Subgroup 1. New data is needed for evaluating its phylogenetic position within the group.
