Laimydorus paraincae so closely resembles L. incae that a detailed description would be almost identical. Three diagnostic characters separate them: The larger size of L. paraincae; longitudinal vulva and arrangement of supplements.
Habitat: Soil from bank of Lake Waubay, South Dakota. Associated with L. incae to which it is obviously closely related. Both are conspicuous for their free-swimming ability. The 4 gland-like bodies near the head perhaps are yellow when specimens are alive.
