Abstract. This paper reviews the julid genus Cylindroiulus in the Asian part of Russia, based both on re-examined material from Tomsk City, Siberia and on some new samples. The present contribution corrects several mistakes in the identification and localization of C. latestriatus (Curtis, 1845) and records this species in southwestern Siberia for the first time. Both C. britannicus (Verhoeff, 1891) and C. truncorum (Silvestri, 1896) are new to the fauna of the Asian part of Russia. Remarks are provided for all these three anthropochore species, all also being keyed and mapped.
