ABSTRACT. Based on a small material from the Kemerovo Area, SW Siberia, Russia, the first data on the lithobiid centipede fauna are given from there. Six lithobiid species have been revealed: Lithobius (Ezembius) ostiacorum Stuxberg, 1876, L. (E.) proximus Sseliwanoff, 1880, L. (E.) sibiricus Gerstfeldt, 1859, L. (Monotarsobius) crassipes L. Koch, 1862, L. (M.) curtipes C.L. Koch, 1847 and L. (M.) fugax Stuxberg, 1876. Moreover, the genus Lithobius Leach, 1814 and two subgenera, Ezembius Chamberlin, 1919 and Monotarsobius Verhoeff, 1905, and the family Lithobiidae they belong to, are new to the Kemerovo Area as well. The distributions of all species encountered in the study region are mapped.

KEY WORDS: lithobiomorph centipedes, fauna, new records, Kemerovo Area, Siberia, Russia.
