In this case the improved hidden line style doesn't really
work. You can draw the circles only for the visible part
or use the package pst-solide3d for central projection.

The first solution:
\psset{unit=30.0mm,Alpha=45, Beta=15}
   \parametricplotThreeD[xPlotpoints=500, yPlotpoints=10](-45,135)(0,90){%
         /r 1.0 def
         r t cos mul u sin mul
         r t sin mul u sin mul
         r u cos  mul
\parametricplotThreeD[xPlotpoints=500, yPlotpoints=8](0,90)(-45,135){%
         /r 1.0 def
         r u cos mul t sin mul
         r u sin mul t sin mul
         r t cos  mul
\pstThreeDCoor[xMin=-.5, xMax=2.0, yMin=-.5, yMax=2.0, zMin=-.5,
