A. Smith, 1836,
near Kurrichane, western Transvaal, South Africa.
In the past, sometimes included in genus Eremialector. Recent study#R suggests that this species is part of a clade that contains also P. personatus 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. Proposed race tanganjicae (from E of L Tanganyika) considered inseparable from saturatior. Two subspecies recognized.
