In Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter a beast is mentioned that is living on Coruscant, underground, that could be used to create a cloak of Force invisibility.

Lorn, unaware of this, uses a piece from the body of a subterranean creature to block his presence in the Force, and follows Maul to a Republic space station. 

What is the name of that creature? Does it appear in any other book?

The creature you're looking for is a Taozin

Finding their way all over the galaxy, taozin were thought to be extinct until Darsha Assant, Lorn Pavan, and I-5YQ stumbled across one circa 32 BBY while fleeing from Darth Maul in the depths of the Coruscant underworld.
Star Wars Wikia - Taozin

The creature made its first appearance in Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter, followed by mentions in both Coruscant Nights II: Street of Shadows in August 2008 and Coruscant Nights III: Patterns of Force in January 2009. It's next appearance in Darth Plagueis published in January 2012. It's most recent appearance was in The Last Jedi (not the film) in February 2013.

Unfortunately the only sources I can currently give you are from the wiki, I will update them with Legends sources later. (If I can acquire said sources)
