CommentIllustration of P. h. vaucheri in Schlüter (2004).

At present three mitochondrial lineages of this species are known: two in southern Spain and another inhabiting Morocco and Western Algeria (Kaliontzopoulou et al. 2011). Notice that the rest of the North African range of the genus (NE Algeria, Tunisia and a small isolate in the High Atlas in Morocco) is still maintained under P. hispanica, since they represent a separate phylogenetic clade (Kaliontzopoulou et al. 2011) and elevation to the species level by Busack et al. 2005 only included the Moroccan and Spanish populations.

Type: not in BMNH (P. Campbell, pers. comm., 7 July 2014).
