notes

De Meijere (1926a, 1928a) described the puparium of Ph. thalictri Escher-Künding, 1912, taken from the flowers of Thalictrum. Later (1937a, 1950a) he refers to this material as Ph. clematidis. This probably is not correct, but the relation between clematidis, thalictri and a third species, Ph. krygeri Hering, 1949 is far from clear.
