This article contributes the descriptive detail for Multipseudechiniscus Schulte & Miller, 2011, a new genus in the family Echiniscidae named but incompletely described in the recent publication of a poster abstract. Multipseudechiniscus was separated from Pseudechiniscus based on the presence of paired pseudosegmental plates on each trunk segment; a long, flexible pharyngeal tube; and large spurs on the internal claws. The type species, Pseudechiniscus raneyi (Grigarick, Mihelćić, & Schuster, 1964) is re-described. The new genus has been collected only in California, Oregon, and Montana, U.S.A. and appears to have a regional distribution.
