Ichnea paraguayensis specimens key out to I. marginella GORHAM, from which I. paraguayensis specimens differ by showing a pronotum that is more narrowed in its anterior 1/3, and the elytra and legs are completely black.

Head: Frons plane, extraordinarily narrow; antenna ( Fig. 37 View Figs 28-42 ) capitate, funicular antennomeres transverse and densely setose, capitular antennomeres 8 and 9 rectangulate, antennomere 10 oblong; eyes large, finely facetted, eye wider than frons (EW/FW 30/7). Thorax: Pronotum ( Fig. 199 View Figs 194-200 ) slightly oblong (PW/PL 70/80) sides without tubercle, disc concave paralaterally near pronotal collar; discal and lateral trichobothria well developed; elytral asetiferous punctures small, profusely distributed (EL/EW 375/65); anterior margin of protibia with 11 spines. Abdomen: Pygidium transverse.
