Five species of Chilopoda from East Kazakhstan Region are recorded in Kazakhstanfor the first time: Lamyctes (Lamyctes) emarginatus (Newport, 1844), Lithobius (Monotarsobius) crassipes L. Koch, 1862, Lithobius (Monotarsobius) steppicus Farzalieva et Zalesskaja, 2002, Lithobius (Lithobius) forficatus (Linnaeus, 1758) and Scutigera coleoptrata (Linnaeus, 1758). All records in the region are mapped.
