Crocodorylaimus paraincae
(Thorne, 1974) Andrássy, 1988
Syn.: Laimydorus paraincae Thorne, 1974
2.3 mm; a = 59; b = 5.8; c = 16; V = 49
2.4 mm; a = 59; b = 5.9; c = 75; T = 58

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.
