The genus Paraloxopsis Günther, 1932 was described from a single female specimen of Paraloxopsis korystes Günther, 1932. The male and egg are described for the first time, along with a redescription, and illustrations, of the female; three new Bornean localities are recorded for this species. Loxopsis tuberculata Redtenbacher, 1908 is transferred to Paraloxopsis, redescribed, and recorded from five new localities. The key features distinguishing this genus from Loxopsis Westwood, 1859 are listed. The mode of egg laying is discussed in relation to other possible related genera.
