Members of the genus Ichthydium are characterized by a thin, smooth cuticular body covering, which is devoid of scales or spines, with the possible exception of one or two pairs of tactile bristles. The species described in this paper raises to nineteen the number of those known in this genus. Seven type species are included in the eight species which have been reported from Michigan. The type specimens will be deposited in the United States National Museum.
