Type locality

Mexico, Jalisco, Mazamitla.

Distribution

Sierra Madre Occidental; Jalisco, northern Michoacán, Nayarit and southern Sinaloa ( Fig. 15 View Fig ). The first record of P. huichol   from Michoacán is presented herein.

Remarks

The original description of P. huichol   indicates that the colour pattern varies from dark metallic green, bright metallic green, to dark green with blue sheen. After revising additional specimens, a bright metallic green morph with red sheen was found by us. To the original description we add the elytral striae impressed basally as distinct fossae; and central ridge and column of endophallite copulatrix similar in size ( Fig. 1G View Fig ). For the female, the head showing a cephalic trituberculate carina with middle tubercle more frontally projected, carinate and less prominent than lateral tubercles; frons with almost effaced punctures; pronotal sculpture completely smooth, with almost effaced punctures; pronotal process trituberculate, with posterior concavity, followed posteriorly by reduced, rounded tubercle; middle tubercle dentiform or rounded, more developed and projected frontally than lateral tubercles; lateral tubercles rounded or carinate; posterior pronotal midline completely effaced.
