Diagnosis. The species P. radjabii  sp. nov. is very similar to P. compeditus Wiedemann. The  male and the female of the new species can be distinguished as follows: face uniformly rounded medially without a distinct knob, posterior margin of tergite VII of the female with a thickening; the male terminalia are different.

The new species can be incorporated into Sorokina’s key to males and female of Asian Paragus  ( Sorokina 2009: 357, 364) by the following couplets:
