Only species that is known to be near Cambodia. I don't believe it has been recorded in Cambodia before.

@ponerinecat when Vincenzo Gentile identified the genus for me, he said it seemed like the P. macta specimen he examined from Thailand. That was collected approx. 330 km from this observation, so not too far. I was still reluctant to ID to species level.
