The genus Parawixia has only the species Parawixia dehaani that is suitable for the Orient, there is no other answer, must wait for the discovery of a new species.
The body length of males of this species is about more than 03 mm.
I took a photo of a female with a body length of 10mm.
I'm waiting for others to comment, but ... all respect your opinion of course.

Welcome back, Chief. This is quite a catch...congratulations.

Thank you Võ Anh Tuấn for the id suggestion. As to experts here in thiruvananthapuram this has never been reported, and suppose its a male. Thank you.
