( Fig. 3 View FIGURES 1–5 )

Material examined. 1 Ƌ: CHINA: HONG KONG: Tai Po 1.1996. leg. G. de Rougemont ( OUMNH).

Remarks. This male has not been identified to the specific level, because regarding the proportions of the body and the general shape of the aedeagus it is similar to P. ampliata   sp.n. However, the specimen differs from this species by smaller body size, paler coloration, a more transverse pronotum, and a narrower apical part of the median lobe ( Fig. 3 View FIGURES 1–5 ).
