ABSTRACT. Two new species of lithobiid centipedes are described: Lithobius (Lithobius) dissimilis sp.n., from the Stavropol Territory, and L. (Monotarsobius) evsyukovi sp.n., from the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania. The former new species seems to be especially similar to L. integrior (Chamberlin, 1952) and L. ispartensis Zapparoli, 1999, both from Turkey, while L. evsyukovi sp.n. belongs to the L. ferganensis group and seems to be the nearest to L. sseliwanoffi Garbowski, 1897.
