Distribution.

Trans-Siberian temperate range: L. sibiricus   is one of the most widely spread lithobiomorph centipedes in the Asian part of Russia, having been reported from southwestern Siberia (Tomsk Area, Altai Province and Republic of Altai), central and eastern Siberia (Krasnoyarsk Province, Irkutsk Area, Zabaikalskii Province and the republics of Buryatia and Sakha) and the Russian Far East (Amur Area, Maritime Province and Sakhalin Island); also recorded in northern Mongolia (Nefediev et al. 2016, 2017c, d).

Remarks.

In the study localities, L. sibiricus   shows a higher abundance on the northern slope.
