Two new Mexican species of Paranura from Quintana Roo State are described and illustrated. These Mexican species are easy to distinguish among species with three eyes per side because they have only two ocular setae. Paranura magdalenae sp. nov. is the smaller species (450 μm) with relatively long setae. Paranura rooensis sp. nov. is larger (950 μm), with relatively short setae. A comparative morphological table for species with three eyes per side is given, and a key for identification of the 34 species in this genus is included.
