Based on the latest review of the anthropochore millipede fauna of Asian Russia, 9 species from 7 genera, 5 families and two orders of Diplopoda are known to occur there as anthropochore introductions [Nefediev et al., 2014]. The present record of the polydesmid millipede, Polydesmus inconstans Latzel, 1884, which is new to the millipede fauna of the Asian part of Russia, increases the number of invasive diplopod species in the territory to ten. © ARTHROPODA SELECTA, 2016.

The anthropochore millipede fauna of Asian Russia is reviewed, based on the available literature records, as well as new samples from the Altai Province and only partly published, freshly revised material [Nefediev, Nefedieva, 2006, 2011]. The julid genus Brachyiulus Berlese, 1884, as well as B. jawlowskii Lohmander, 1928, are new to the millipede faunas of Asian Russia and Kazakhstan. The polydesmid genus Brachydesmus Heller, 1858 and B. superus Latzel, 1884 are reported from Asian Russia for the first time. Both the genus Poratia Cook et Cook, 1894 and P. digitata (Porat, 1889), as well as the family Pyrgodesmidae they belong to, are formally new to the millipede fauna of Russia. The subcosmopolitan Nopoiulus kochii (Gervais, 1847) is recorded in Kazakhstan for the first time. Remarks are provided for all of the anthropochore species of the study area, all being mapped as well. © 2014 ARTHROPODA SELECTA.

This paper reviews the julid genus Cylindroiulus in the Asian part of Russia, based both on re-examined material from Tomsk City, Siberia and on some new samples. The present contribution corrects several mistakes in the identification and localization of C. latestriatus (Curtis, 1845) and records this species in southwestern Siberia for the first time. Both C. britannicus (Verhoeff, 1891) and C. truncorum (Silvestri, 1896) are new to the fauna of the Asian part of Russia. Remarks are provided for all these three anthropochore species, all also being keyed and mapped. © ARTHROPODA SELECTA 2013.

The diplopod genus Leptoiulus Verhoeff, 1894 is new to the fauna of the Asian part of Russia, due to the discovery of L. tigirek sp. nov. from the south-western part of the Altai Province, Siberia. A description of the new species and infor-mation on its habitats, numbers and locomotor activity as well as comparison with the European Leptoiulus trilineatus (C.L. Koch, 1847) are presented.

The distribution of millipedes along an altitudinal gradient in the south of Lake Teletskoye, Altai, Russia based on new samples from the Kyga Profile sites, as well as on partly published and freshly revised mate­rial (Mikhaljova et al. 2007, 2008, 2014, Nefedieva and Nefediev 2008, Nefediev and Nefedieva 2013, Nefedieva et al. 2014), is established. The millipede diversity is estimated to be at least 15 species and subspecies from 10 genera, 6 families and three orders. The bulk of species diversity is confined both to low- and mid-mountain chern taiga forests and high-mountain shrub tundras, whereas the highest num­bers, reaching up to 130 ind./m², is shown in subalpine Pinus sibirica sparse growths. Based on clustering studied localities on species diversity similarity two groups of sites are defined: low-mountain sites and subalpine sparse growths of P. sibirica ones. © Julia S.

The genus Sibiriulus Gulička, 1963, which has hitherto been known to comprise only four species, is rediagnosed and shown to include seven species from Siberia, Russia. Three species are described here as new to science: S. latisupremus sp. nov., S. baigazanensis sp. nov., S. aktashensis sp. nov. The species Sibiriulus profugus (Stuxberg, 1876) is recorded in the fauna of the Altai Province and the Republic of Altai for the first time. All currently known species of Sibiriulus are keyed and mapped, including the new species. Copyright © 2014 Magnolia Press.
