distribution within Europe
Described from southern Italy; found also in France (Fauna Europaea, 2009).
Rear margin of meso- and metanotum laterally with a pit. This, and also the shape of the cremaster approaches this species to Ph. rajella. However, nothing is said about the presence of spines ventrally on abd. 7.
