Mines, P. rugapetiolatum Croat and P. sharoniae Croat. In addition to these twenty-eight new species, nine additional unpublished species (all sterile and therefore not published here as new) are also described. One more species included here, P. fibraecataphyllum M. M. Mora & Croat, is in press in another journal. All species are described in detail and illustrated and an identification key is provided.
