Excerpts from Edwards, 2004:
"There are 10 species in this group, most of which resemble the octopunctatus and putnami groups in lacking epigynal flaps...
...It is synapomorphic for the presence of lateral band III (somewhat obscured in P. adonis, P. arizonensis, and P. cruentus). The group (minus P. adonis and P. cruentus) shares the presence of a median ocular band with a few outliers, primarily in the cardinalis group. With the exception of P. kastoni and P. vexans (both with median spots), the median ocular band is complete or broken into three spots...
...The following unique character states are found in this group: 1) a palpal stridulatory organ, completely yellow leg I fringes, femur I with a black dorsal subproximal tuft, and a yellow ventral stripe on femur I (all on P. arizonensis, P. cruentus, P. mystaceus
), 2) expanded carapace “cheeks” (P. adonis, P. arizonensis, P. cruentus
), 3) a transverse integumental ridge on the carapace (P. mystaceus, P. toro
