Cayenne, French Guiana.
Along with P. nigrogenis, P. baeri and P. capitata, has sometimes been placed in Coccopsis. Previously considered conspecific with P. nigrogenis (which see). Race cervicalis appears closer genetically to P. capitata and has been proposed for species rank#R, but difference small and specimens from S of range of nominate have reduced black around eyes, suggesting that variation possibly clinal; present species and P. capitata might be treated as conspecific. Two subspecies recognized.
Introduced (probably nominate) in Valle del Cauca, Colombia#R.
