Priocyphus cordobensis is distinguished from P. bosqi because the pronotum is strongly truncate-conical, with more convex flanks, small punctures on disc, and a short median sulcus, only extended along its anterior third; the elytra are broader, with less convex intervals. The shape of pronotum is similar to that of Priocyphopsis humeridens, but in this species elytral humeri have tubercles.

A key to identify all the species of Priocyphus is given in Lanteri & del Río (2016).

It is associated with vegetations typical of the Espinal biogeographic province, such as Acacia caven L. (= Vachellis caven) (Fabaceae).
