Distribution. China: Gansu ( Egorov, 1989).

Remarks. This species was described from Amdos highland, Gansu [including Gannan and parts of Tianzhu] with three specimens (2♂♂, 1♀), posterior angles of pronotum rectangular and sharp, median depression on dorsal surface of parameres extended to base in the original description. In this study, eight specimens were examined and their posterior angles rectangular but not sharp ( Fig. 2View FIGURES 1–2: A), median depression also not extended to base ( Figs. 2View FIGURES 1–2: I, 7). According to the locality, body size and other diagnostic characters of these specimens are almost same as P. amdoensis  , we regarded them as variability of this species.
