We present the first records of Plumariidae from Paraguay. Specimens of Plumarius hirticornis (André), Plumarius tumidulus Papp and Plumaroides andalgalensis Brothers represent the first records of these two genera and three species for that country. The recently described female of Plumaroides tiphlus is not a plumariid but a bethylid belonging to the cosmopolitan genus Pseudisobrachium Kieffer. The holotype of the only named species based on a female in the family, Plumarius coquimbo Perez D'Angello, has been lost.
