Differs from P. baicalensis in having the black on the nape extending rather farther on the back, which is white tinged with sandy grey ; upper tail-coverts pure white ; wings and tail rather broadly margined with white ; under parts, below the throat and flanks, pure white. Culmen 0.4, wing 2.45, tail 2.23. tarsus 0.73 inch.
