This genus can be differed from Magnispina and Heteropachylus by the combination of the following characters: Three mesotergal areas; mesotergal area III with paired armature. Free tergite II with variable median and lateral armature. Dorsal anal operculum bearing an apophysis or at least an elevation in the middle. Calcaneus I mostly with same colour as astragalus (except for P. mutica) and about half the size of metatarsus I. Femur IV only slightly curved in dorsal view and straight in lateral view without dorsobasal apophysis and with row of rounded tubercles on the prolateral margin, increasing in size progressively towards the apex of the femur. Male genitalia. Four setae of the distal group equal sized. Dorsal digitiform process in glans present.[1]
