Four new species of the genus Euphthiracarus (Euphthiracaridae) from litter and soil samples collected in Madagascar and East Tanzania are described. Two belong to the subgenus Euphthiracarus: Euphthiracarus (Euphthiracarus) duplex sp. nov. and Euphthiracarus (Euphthiracarus) netron sp. nov., and two to the subgenus Pocsia: Euphthiracarus (Pocsia) paraafricanus sp. nov. and Euphthiracarus (Pocsia) uluguruensis sp. nov. Detalied descriptions and figures are provided. A key to all species of the genus Euphthiracarus from the Afrotropical Region is presented.
