Majambo Bay, Madagascar.
Recent study#R suggests that this species is part of a clade that contains also P. gutturalis and P. coronatus; or, alternatively, that all three may form a group along with the two Syrrhaptes species, P. orientalis, P. namaqua and P. exustus, and possibly including also P. alchata and P. burchelli; further study needed. Has previously been considered closest to P. decoratus. Monotypic.
