ABSTRACT. The lithobiomorph centipede fauna of urban areas in southwestern Siberia comprises at least eight species from four subgenera, two genera and two families. The following records are new to Russia: Lamyctes (Lamyctes) coeculus (Brölemann, 1889); to the Asian part of Russia: Lithobius (Lithobius) lucifugus L. Koch, 1862; to Siberia: L. (L.) melanops Newport, 1845; or to southwestern Siberia: L. (Monotarsobius) crassipes C.L. Koch, 1862, L. (L.) forficatus (Linnaeus, 1758) and Lamyctes (Lamyctes) emarginatus (Newport, 1844). All of the distributions in the region in question are mapped.
