In savanna areas and of tropical dry forest of the department of Sucre, Colombian Caribbean, the pseudoescorpion fauna was studied. 38 individuals were collected belonging in four families and six species, being the litter and the bark the most abundant microhabitat. The specie Pseudochthonius heterodentatus Beier, 1946 is reported for the first time from Colombia, their distribution area being increased.
