Abstract
    A literature review reveals that 13 species are described belonging to the genus ParacomesomaHope and Murphy, 1972. In Can Gio mangrove forest, Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam, one new species Paracomesoma paralongispiculumn. sp. was found, which brings the number of species up to 14. This species differs from all known species of this genus by its very long spicules (12 times a.b.d) and 11–12 papillae supplements all confined within the spicular region.
