The members of the family include fossil, 100 million year-old ancestor of the family, broadly expanded by the possession of lobelike or digitiform processes, which enable the crickets to run across dry sandy surface with efficiency.

Females of this species can be distinguished by 1) the distal digitiform process on the outer lobe of the fifth leg; 2) the genital double somite being longer than wide, representing about 55% of length of urosome length; 3) the extremely slender body; and 4) the relatively short antennule, which equals only 22% of the total body length.
Adults of this monotypic genus differ from other percophids in that the first dorsal fin is positioned at the back of the head and is in line with the mid-operculum, 8-10 digitiform processes are present on the posterior upper opercular margin, and expanded lobes are present at the distal end of the medial branchiostegal rays (Parin, 1990).

Paraphidnia lacks the digitiform process on the pedicellus of the antenna, which is diagnostic of the other genus, and the distal tubercle on the scapus is less developed compared to species of Anaphidna.
