A new species of zorapteran (Zorotypidae: Zorotypus) is described and figured from alates and apterous individuals captured in Reserva Cientifica Ferreira Pena (Caxiuanã), Pará State, eastern Amazonia, Brazil. Zorotypus caxiuana Rafael, Godoi, and Engel, new species, belongs to the shannoni species-group that also includes Z. amazonensis Rafael and Engel and can be recognized by the cluster of proclinate setae on the male vertex, a similar metafemoral ornamentation, and a membranous endophallus. A key to the species of the shannoni species-group and a summary of Brazilian zorapteran species is provided.
