Excerpts from Edwards, 2004:
"The seven species of this group all have the proximal end of the embolus spiral extending prominently distal to the palea...

...In most earlier versions of the phylogeny, the positions of P. boei and P. carneus were reversed, which appears to me to be more likely, based on the overall similarities (particularly in the shapes of the embolus and duct heads) of P. boei with P. adumbratus, and P. carneus with P. pompatus. Another variation was the separation of P. insignarius and P. phoenix into their own group, sometimes as sister to the otiosus group."(1)
