IntroductionMale closely resembles P. montana but erect portion of embolus is more or less parallel-sided. The embolus is shorter and stouter than that of insignis, and has a distinct retrolateral ramus. The embolus bears some resemblance to that of dithalea, but the rami are closer together. The female of chaimona is poorly known.
