Munro Mutuura [Munroe, Mutuura, 1968], where they described a new species of this genus, including P. orientalis Munroe & Mutuura, 1968 from Japan.Symptoms, which the authors identify this species of minor importance, unobtrusive and almost completely overlap intraspecific variation (which in this group is very high). This was confirmed by the study of material from the west and east of the Palearctic, which also showed a slight difference. Therefore, we believe P. pulveralis (Hübner, 1796) = orientalis Munroe & Mutuura, 1968, syn.nov »
So, probably, and you can put Psammotis pulveralis)
