Paramysis Czerniavsky, 1882, the most diverse genus of mysid crustaceans (Mysida, Mysidae) in the Caspian Sea and Black Sea region, includes a number of species with unstable and confusing nomenclature. Three species and one subspecies are redescribed here based on characters from recent taxonomic and phylogenetic studies as well as on new diagnostic features. Neotypes are designated for P. (Mesomysis) intermedia (Czerniavsky, 1882) and for P. (Paramysis) kessleri sarsi (Derzhavin, 1925), and a lectotype and paralectotypes for P. (P.) eurylepis (G. O. Sars, 1907) and P. (P.) kessleri kessleri (Grimm in MS) G. O. Sars, 1895. Paramysis armata Czerniavsky, 1882, is excluded from the synonymy of P. kessleri and declared nomen dubium. The diagnosis of the subgenus Mesomysis Czerniavsky, 1882, is updated with the addition of new characters.
