Remark Miyamoto & Morino, 2004 divide the genus into three groups: Group 1: Antenna 2 and pereopods 6 and 7 strongly sexually dimorphic, represented by supralittral species: P. joi Stock & Biernbaum 1994 = P. crassicornis (Derzhavin, 1937), P. munmui Jo 1988, P. pacifica n. sp., P. pachypus (Derzhavin, 1937), P. platensis (Krøyer, 1845). Group 2: Antenna 2 sexually dimorphic, pereopods 6 and 7 never show sexual dimorphism, represented by semi-terrestrial species: P. ashmoleorum Stock, 1996 and P. monodi (Martens et al., 1986). Group 3: Antenna 2 and pereopods 6 and 7 barely (or slightly) sexually dimorphic, represented by terrestrial species: P. humicola (Martens, 1868), P. japonica (Tattersall, 1922) and P. kaalensis (J.L. Barnard, 1955), P. lanipo (Richardson, 1991), P. pickeringi (Dana, 1853). [details]
