A second camel spider (Arachnida, Solifugae) from the Late Cretaceous (c. 99 Ma) Burmese amber of Myanmar is described. It is referred to Cushingia cf. ellenbergeri Dunlop et al., 2015. This extinct species is of uncertain familial affinities, but noticeable are similarities to the modern genus Dinorhax Simon, 1879, which is today the only camel spider recorded from Southeast Asia. The present specimen differs from the original holotype in some characters. For example, the number of malleoli strongly suggests that the present specimen is a juvenile, and thus potentially provides valuable data about intraspecific variation within this fossil species.
