Diplothyrus lehtineni n. sp. is described from adults females and males collected on surveys in the Brazilian Amazon forest. Measurements and illustrations of both sexes are provided. The presence of two modified setae on the palp genu, the absence of fringed seta on the palp genu and the absence of complex branched outgrowths on the chelicera characterizes this species. A description of Haller's organ solenidia is also presented. (AU)
