Soares, 1944 are transferred to Gonyleptinae; SCHIZOMIDA: one species, new record of the order from Tocantins and from the Cerrado biome; SCORPIONES: seven species, one of them new record from Tocantins and two morphotypes; Chilopoda: 19 morphotypes, SCUTIGEROMORPHA: a widespread species Sphendononema guildingii (Newport, 1845) and another morphotype; GEOPHILOMORPHA: one morphotype; SCOLOPENDROMORPHA: 16 morphotypes, seven of them new records.
