This species occurs in the Amazon Basin and the Guianas. It has been conflated with the very similar P. neaerea in the past, but Neild (1996) considers it distinct, based on larger size and more pointed forewings.

This page is a Tree of Life Leaf Page.

Each ToL leaf page provides a synopsis of the characteristics of a group of organisms representing a leaf at the tip of the Tree of Life. The major distinction between a leaf and a branch of the Tree of Life is that a leaf cannot generally be further subdivided into subgroups representing distinct genetic lineages.

For a more detailed explanation of the different ToL page types, have a look at the Structure of the Tree of Life page.
