Identification
Extracted from Western Bees obtained by the American Museum Expeditions by Cockerell (1921).


Differs a little from the type in having a very fine supraclypealline just above the clypeus, and a small spot on each side of clypeus. The clypeal mark is trilobed, the lobes acute, like a leaf. Swenk considered this to be a synonym of P. asclepiadis Cockerell, but it has much darker wings and must, I think, be regarded as distinct.
