Parachonetes is proposed as a new chonetid genus with Chonetes macrostriata Walcott from Nevada as its type species. It is thought to have been derived from the protochonetid genus Eccentricosta. Barrande's species Chonetes verneuili is assigned to Parachonetes as are two named species from south-eastern Australia. Parachonetes is absent in eastern North America, but is represented in Nevada, the Canadian Arctic, Novaya Zemlya, the Ural Mountains, Central Asia, south-eastern Asia, Czechoslovakia, and in south-eastern Australia.
