Multidentorhodacarus tocantinensis sp. nov. is described based on the morphology of adult females collected from litter and soil in the Cerrado biome of the State of Tocantins, north of Brazil. The holotype and paratypes of M. squamosus Karg, 2000 were examined, given that this species was also found in this study, and complementary morphological information about it is provided.
