ABSTRACT. Three families, genera and species of terrestrial isopods are new to Asian Russia’s list: Trachelipodidae, Trachelipus Budde-Lund, 1908, and Trachelipus rathkii (Brandt, 1833); Cylisticidae, Cylisticus Schnitzler, 1853, and Cylisticus convexus (De Geer, 1778); and Trichoniscidae, Trichoniscus Brandt, 1833, and Trichoniscus pygmaeus Sars, 1898. All woodlice in the south of western Siberia seem to be entirely associated with synanthropic habitats. Distributional and ecological remarks are provided for all of those anthropochore species in the study area.
