Geotrupacarus n. gen. includes two unusual macrochelid species described from geotrupid beetles in Florida, USA. All postembryonic stages of the new genus are characterized, and a key to macrochelid taxa that share many of its typically non-phoretic morphological characters is included. Attention is called to the presence of what appear to be two pairs of cribral solenostomes in adults.
