Panchami Shraddha is done for those deceased family members who died on Panchami Tithi, including both Shukla and Krishna Paksha Panchami.
Panchami Shraddha Tithi is also known as Kunwara Panchami. Doing Shraddha on this Tithi is significant for those deceased family members who died unmarried.
Pitru Paksha Shraddhas are Parvan Shraddhas (पार्वण श्राद्ध) and auspicious time to perform them is either Kutup Muhurat and Rohina etc. Muhurat after that till Aparahna Kala gets over. Tarpan (तर्पण) is done at the end of the Shraddha.
