= P. inermis Jeannel, 1933: 251  , 1936: 92; Peck, 1973a: 86 syn. (holotype seen).? Syntypes (several specimens, males and females, in original description); [“Holoype male”, in Peck, 1973a, seen] in BMNH. Type locality: “Iruqui”, Mexico. [Note: This locality does not exist and it is a probable misinterpretation of “Truqui” (the collector Eugenio (Eugen) Truqui, Sardinian consul in Cypress, who died in 1860 in Rio de Janeiro, and co-author with Flaminio Baudi di Selva of “Studi Entomologici (Torino)”, in Papavero, 1973: 343, 350); but no person of this name is listed in Burke & Fryxell (1995) or Selander & Vaurie (1962)].
