Taxon Notes:Iwatsuki et al 2012 resurrected P. refulgens from the synonymy of P. niphonia. Although Iwatsuki et al included references to Australian citations under P. refulgens, the illustration in Allen 1997 was not from Australian material and there are no confirmed records of P. refulgens from Australian waters. P. niphonia has been recorded from around northern Australia from central WA to central NSW.
