Material examined. LECTOTYPE female, Sydney, NSW, Daemel, ZMH (ex Museum Godeffroy 8646). A lectotype is here designated to stabilize nomenclature. The larger of the ZMH syntypes from Sydney has been used. The original description reports further syntype (s) from Peak Downs in central Queensland (not found) and specimens from there would belong to a different species to the Sydney specimens   . PARALECTOTYPES The other ZMH specimen, a female also from Sydney, two females in NMV, K9712 View Materials K9713 View Materials , also labelled “Museum Godeffroy 8646”, plus one female labelled “Sidney” in BMNH (1891.8.1.797) become paralectotypes   .

Diagnosis. Clypeal mat of hairs in the males extending over the front of the cephalothorax (separating it from all but P. bulburin   ), relatively faint markings on the dorsal abdomen, sparse fringing on M1 (separates it from P. bulburin   ), male copulatory organs without prolateral distal tegular lobe or dorsal distal tegular lobe, female copulatory organs with proximal seminal ducts long and uncoiled anterior to spermatheca (separating it from P. basilonesa   and P. amplior   ).
