Material examined: Luzon: Laguna Pr., Mt. Banahaw, above Kinabuhayan, trail to Crystalino, 24.XI.1995, leg. J. Kodada & R. Rigova, det. Wang M., 1 [worker] (NHMW).
Diagnosis of worker: TL 4.5 - 6.2 mm. Clypeus dorsally with strong median carina, ventrally variably modified, but always without distinct central tooth. Masticatory margin of mandible with diastema. Dorsum of head rugoreticulate, of alitrunk smooth. Pronotal spines very long (PSL1> 0.35, usually> 0.40), much longer than propodeal spines. First gastral tergite without setae.

It differs from other material examined (including a syntype of P. bicolorHNS) in a completely smooth pronotum and agrees in that characteristic with the type of P. taurus StitzHNS, 1925 from Palawan (synonymy and discussion see Wang 2003: p. 425); also see discussion.
