A new ostracode species, Paraparchites mazonensis, is described from Mazon Creek concretions in the Middle Pennsylvanian Francis Creek Shale of Savage, 1927 (Desmoinesian = Westphalian C) in northeastern Illinois. The occurrence of this genus suggests a brackish water environment in the areas of formation of the ostracode-bearing ironstone concretions.
