Atyeo (1958) described Bonzia bdelliformis from a tree hole in Tennessee, USA. Smiley (1975) erected Parabonzia for Bonzia bdelliformis. Den Heyer (1975) erected Cunabdella for Cunabdella marthae. Den Heyer (1977b) synonymized Cunabdella with Parabonzia and described Parabonzia athiasae. Kuznetzov and Livshitz (1979) reported Parabonzia from Russia. Smiley (1992) described Parabonzia mumai from Florida, USA. Corpuz-Raros (1996a) described Parabonzia mindanensis from the Philippines. Lin and Zhang (1998) described Parabonzia trioxys. Later they (Lin and Zhang 2002) described Parabonzia zhangi. Skvarla et al. (2013) reported Parabonzia bdelliformis from the Ozark Mountains in Arkansas.
Gnathosoma. Pedipalps 5-segmented and reach beyond the subcapitulum by at most the distal half of the tibiae. Apophyses absent. A multi-branched seta present dorsally on the telofemora. Tibiotarsi terminate in two strong setae. 2 pairs of adoral setae present or absent. Subcapitulum with up to 8 pairs of setae present.
Idiosoma, dorsal. Proterosoma bears a shield complemented with 2 pairs of setae (at and pt) and 2 pairs of setose sensillae (lps and mps). Dorsal hysterosoma may bear a shield; if a shield is present it may be complemented with a variable number of setae depending on the extent of the shield. Setae c1–h1, c2, f2 and h2 present and smooth. Cupule im is present laterad and caudally of e1. Integument that does not bear shields or plates is striated.
Idiosoma, ventral. Coxae I–II fused or not and coxae III–IV fused or not. Genital plates with up to 9 pairs of setae; 2 pairs of genital papillae visible underneath the plates. Up to 4 pairs of setae present on the anal plates. Up to 9 pairs of setae on the integument between coxae II and the anal plates. Legs. Trichobothrium on leg tibia IV present. The ambulacral claws occur on either side of a 4-rayed empodium.
