1. female P. "braunsi" = tripunctatus from Yemen - by Wesolowska, van Harten 2007

Female of P. tripunctatus occurs together with  male P. "braunsi" from Yemen, but that does not seem to be conspecific
 with P.  braunsi from S Africa  (note abdominal pattern differences)

Comment by Wesolowska, van Harten 2007: 60

Opinion by J. Prószynski. Matching male and female is a progress. Question remains whether males of P. braunsi from S Africa and Yemen are conspecific. They seem to differ by abdominal patern, and although palpal organs are similar (to several species, but not identical) the doubts remain. Drawings of P. arabicus are drawn in position which makes comparison impossible (Prószynski 2003a: 156).
