Two new genera of short-tailed whip-scorpions are described based on material from Brazilian iron ore and canga caves in the Carajas region, Para, Brazil. Naderiore gen. nov. with a single species N. carajas sp. nov. and also monotypic Cangazomus gen. nov. (type species C. xikrin sp. nov.). The relationships of the two new genera with previously described genera are discussed. Naderiore most closely resembles Adisomus Cokendolpher \& Reddell, 2000, Piaroa Villarreal, Tourinho \& Giupponi, 2008 and Calima Moreno-Gonzalez \& Villarreal, 2012, and can be distinguished from them by Dm(3) modified as macrosetae in the male flagellum. Cangazomus most closely resembles Naderiore, Adisomus Cokendolpher \& Reddell, 2000, and Piaroa Villarreal, Tourinho \& Giupponi, 2008. It differs from all of them by the presence of two pairs of ramified spermathecal lobes, each composed of a differentiated stalk and distoterminal ramified bulbs, chitinized arch without anterior branch and notched lateral tip, pedipalps unarmed and not sexually dimorphic, and the male flagellar setae Dm3 as a microsetae.
