Sixteen taxa are new to the area, one of which, Lithobius cyrtopus is reported second times from Hungary.On the basis of this species list and literature data from the Hungarian Lower Mountains’ regions a cluster analysis was carriedout to evaluate the biogeographical relations of the investigated area. As a result, the Carpathian influence in the Aggtelek Karstwas demonstrated for the Chilopoda fauna as well.
