Remarks

Otoliths of Paraconger brazosensis are very similar to those of Paraconger sector (see below). The essential differences are that those of the former are more massive and compact without many extensions of their posterior end, less angled ventrally, and most importantly, their sulcus is wider. The constriction in the posterior part of the crista inferior is less pronounced.
