- Systematics: P. williamsi is similar to P. fraxini by having sclerotized reduced anal ring with a row of pores and strong setae; by the presence of quinquelocular pores on venter and dorsum, by the small body size, antennae and legs; by one pair of setae on the basal segment of the labium; and by the presence of frontal tubercle. It differs by sthe smaller number of large tubular ducts and quinquelocular pores on the dorsum; by longer ductules than tube ending with a flower-like terminal gland; by unique structure of smaller tubular ducts having 6-locular ends; and by the number, shape and size of the translucent pores on the posterior coxae. (Kozár & Konczné Benedicty, 2008a) Spines of the first instar nymph of P. williamsi are conical, sharply pointed, not truncate as in P. fraxini. (Kozár, et al., 2013)
- Structure: Body of slide-mounted female, elongate-oval. Antennae 6 segmented. Frontal tubercles present. Eyes present on ventral margin.
