Known distribution: surroundings of Brno ( Czech Republic) ( Sekera 1930).

According to Sekera (1930), P. beauchampi   is about 0.6 to 1.2 mm long, with visible eyes but no epidermal pigmentation. The reproductive structures resemble those of P. unipunctata   . The penis is a muscular protractile papilla without glands. The seminal vesicle is variable in shape. The vitellaria are branched and the genital atria are spherical. This species could very well be identical to P. unipunctata   , but new material and investigation are needed.

Sekera (1930) stated that P. beauchampi   is a pseudo-parasitic species because specimens were found on Daphnia   . Probably these individuals were just feeding on Daphnia   , as many other rhabdocoels do ( Dumont & Carels 1987).
