ABSTRACT. Three new species of Eviulisoma are described from Cameroon: E. subfalcatum sp.n., E. bipartitum sp.n., and E. simplex sp.n. These first records of the genus from Cameroon extend its distribution range to central West Africa and confirm the Afrotropical distribution of the genus. A key to all three new Cameroonian species is provided.

KEY WORDS: millipede, Paradoxosomatidae, first record, new species, Cameroon.
