The family Cryptopidae, the genus Cryptops, and the species C. doriae Pocock, 1891 and C. hortensis (Donovan, 1810) are new to the Kazakhstan list, while C. doriae in also new to the entire Palaearctic. Scolopendra canidens Newport, 1844 is new to Kazakhstan’s Kyzylorda and Turkestan regions, while Scutigera coleoptrata (Linnaeus, 1758) to the Akmola Region. Some morphological characters of scolopendromorph species are discussed and illustrated. An identification key to the scutigeromorph and scolopendromorph centipedes of Kazakhstan is given. All records are mapped.
