ABSTRACT. New records of woodlice from anthropogenic and semi-natural habitats of the south of W Siberia replenish the list by three more synanthropic species, and now it comprises at least 7 species from six genera and five families. The genus Protracheoniscus Verhoeff, 1917 and the species P. major (Dollfus, 1903) are reported from the Asian part of Russia for the first time. The following records are new to Siberia: Porcellio scaber Latreille, 1804; Porcellionides pruinosus (Brandt, 1833) and the genus Porcellionides Miers, 1877 to the south of W Siberia; Trachelipus rathkii (Brandt, 1833) to the Novosibirsk and Kemerovo areas, and the Republic of Altai. All new synanthropic woodlouse distributions in the region are mapped.
