Diagnosis. Males differ from all Asian species by the large (larger than subterminal), claw-like terminal apophysis with a pointed tip directed antero-prolaterally (vs. square-shaped, shorter or as long as subterminal), and the long, broad retroventral apophysis with a pointed tip (vs. either abrupt or spine-like, or not tapering). In comparison to the other species treated here, it has the shortest palpal tibia with a length/width ratio of ca. 1.8. Females differ from congeners by having square-shaped endogynal plates (Ep) (vs. lacking in most of the species, or subtriangular in P. thracia Komnenov & Chatzaki, 2016   ).

Description. See Wiehle (1967) and Grimm (1986).

Distribution. Central Europe to Central Asia ( WSC 2020). Record from the North Khorasan Province is the easternmost in the entire range. Newly recorded from Iran ( Fig. 14 View FIGURE 14 ).
