Evans (1937: 105) recognizes two subspecies, incerta and murcia, and lists the specimens of each in the British Museum collection. These "subspecies" have broadly overlapping ranges, specimens of each being recorded from Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Cameroon, Congo and South Sudan. The Liberian specimens are all assignable to murcia. It appears that Evans' "subspecies" are just the expression of an ill-defined cline with the "murcia" tendency showing its greatest deFigures 51-56, 8 genitalia.

The designation of subspecies in incerta seems unnecessary and ill-advised; all specimens are better referred to incerta with no further subdivision.
P. incerta is reported from Guinea and Sierra Leone to Angola, South Sudan, Kenya and Tanganyika.
