A new subgenus, with two new species, of the genus Cavernocepheus (Oribatida, Otocepheidae) are described from soil and litter of Korup National Park in Cameroon. Cavernocepheus (Paracavernocepheus) subgen. nov. differs from the nominative subgenus by the presence of four pairs of genital setae. Revised generic and subgeneric diagnoses and an identification key to the known taxa of the genus Cavernocepheus are presented.
