The new genus Xorilbia (Pseudoscorpiones, Ideoroncidae) is established for three species from the Amazon region previously included in the genus Albiorix: the type species X. arboricola (Mahnert), X. gracilis (Mahnert) and X. lamellifer (Mahnert). The new genus bears a peculiar structure on the arolium that is only found in a few other genera of Ideoroncidae. New locality records are presented for X. gracilis and X. lamellifer, including the first record of X. gracilis from Venezuela.
