  1. Notes: Measurements were collected from: afour males from Ethiopia; the holotype and syntype of P. naqbenius were loaned from The National History Museum, London, UK; bexamination of the type-series; cexamination of own samples from Hesua; dWe speculate that the authors attributed the numbers of the coxite hairs incorrectly; All measurements are in µm
