I do not see as decribed in the notes for separating PInara females: ''undescribed species near divisa is a light yellowish-brown at the base of the wing and on the thorax, becoming darker brown towards the end of the wing (or brown all over)"", but I do see: " P. cana females are off white grading to grey towards the leading edge and across the front of the thorax" - as described in the notes for P. cana females.
