Gill I as long as length of segment II to half of III combined; lanceolate. Gill IV as long as length of segments IV to V combined; lanceolate. Gill VII as long as length of segments VIII to IX; lanceolate. Paraproct with 17–20 marginal spines ( Fig. 15HView FIGURE 15). Paracercus ( Fig. 15GView FIGURE 15) with short spines on each segment. Cercus ( Figs 15E and 15FView FIGURE 15) with spines on all segments, basal half with long spines on all segments, apical half with long spines on every four segments.

Comments. The male imago of P. ibicui  can be distinguished from other male imagoes of Paracloeodes  by the unique combination of having a pointed spine in a concavity of the stylinger plate.
