ABSTRACT. Based on a small material from the Republic of Khakassia, central Siberia, Russia, new information on the myriapod fauna is presented. Two lithobiid species, Lithobius (Ezembius) ostiacorum Stuxberg, 1876 and L. (Monotarsobius) nordenskioeldii Stuxberg, 1876, are recorded from Khakassia for the first time. Both the genus Teleckophoron Gulička, 1972 and its sole species T. montanum Gulička, 1972, as well as the family Kirkayakidae they belong to, are also new to the millipede fauna of Khakassia. The distributions of all species encountered are mapped.

KEY WORDS: geophilomorph centipedes, lithobiomorph centipedes, millipedes, fauna, new records, Siberia.
