Catuquinarú is an extinct and unclassified language of Brazil, preserved in a few words collected by a Dr Bach and published in Church (1898). The name is a common derivative of Catuquina, and Loukotka includes it among the Tupi languages, describing the people as Tupinized Catuquina. However, the little preserved vocabulary does not resemble that of the Tupi languages, Catuquinan languages, or Panoan languages (vd. Panoan Catuquina).

The following words are given by Loukotka:

taka-su 'head saña 'tooth' punü 'hand' uhehü 'water'
