Diagnosis. Rostrum spiniform, larger than supraocular spines, with thin dorsal carina; margin between rostral and supraocular spines straight or slightly concave. Spinules on gastric and hepatic regions forming groups arising from scale-like striae and with few short uniramous setae. Mesogastric region with 1 (rarely 2) well-developed spine. Median cardiac region with 3 or 4 well-developed spines in midline. Few and short setae along anterior branch of cervical groove. Sternal plastron smooth, with some median striae on sternite 4, and few short lateral striae on sternites 5–7. Lateral margin of antennular segment 1 with distal slender portion about half as long as proximal inflated portion. Antennal peduncle with anterior prolongation of segment 1 spiniform; segment 2 more than 2.5 times longer than broad, with distomesial spine of segment 2 mucronated, clearly overreaching antennal peduncle, distolateral spine reaching end of segment 3; segment 3 1.5 times longer than broad. Base of P1 carpus without bundle of setae. P2 propodus about 13 times as long as wide, and about 1.4 times dactylus length.

Remarks. Paramunida belone   is morphologically related to P. lophia   and P. salai   from the Solomon Islands, P.spica   n. sp. from Vanuatu and P. proxima   from the Philippines, off Zamboanga, Mindanao, north of the Admiralty Islands, Indonesia, Kei Islands, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu (see Remarks for those species).

Distribution. New Caledonia, Loyalty Islands, Vanuatu, Tonga, Fiji, Wallis and Futuna and Bali Sea, between 250 and 487 m.
