ABSTRACT. The geophilomorph centipede fauna of urban areas in southwestern Siberia comprises at least seven species belonging to four genera and two families. The following records are new to western Siberia (Geophilus flavus (De Geer, 1778)) or southwestern Siberia (G. proximus C.L. Koch, 1847 and Pachymerium ferrugineum (C.L. Koch, 1835)). The northernmost range limits are reported for Arctogeophilus macrocephalus Folkmanovб et Dobroruka, 1960, Escaryus japonicus Attems, 1927 and E. koreanus Takakuwa, 1937, all lying in western Siberia. The distributions of all relevant species encountered in the region are mapped.
