ABSTRACT. Detailed records of Schizoturanius dmitriewi (Timotheew, 1897) from the Asian part of Russia with new ones from the Republic of Altai, as well as the easternmost records of S. tabescens (Stuxberg, 1876) from the Irkutsk Area are provided. The main differences in gonopodal structure between the closely related S. dmitriewi and S. clavatipes (Stuxberg, 1876) are shown. Spatial relationships between all these three species of Schizoturanius are briefly discussed. The distributions of all Schizoturanius species encountered are mapped. A key to all known species of the genus from Asian Russia is given.

KEY WORDS: Schizoturanius, dmitriewi, clavatipes, tabescens, fauna, new records, Siberia, Asian Russia.
