Four milliped species, substantiated by preserved voucher samples, are reported from Prince Edward
Island, Canada. All are introduced European species that now occur widely in both Canada and the United States,
and the panglobal Asian paradoxosomatid, Oxidus gracilis (C. L. Koch, 1847), is listed as probable. Choneiulus
palmatus (Némec, 1895) (Julida: Blaniulidae) is newly recorded from New Brunswick, and four representatives
of the Julidae are cited from Nova Scotia. Discovery of Cylindroiulus punctatus (Leach, 1815) (Julidae) in this
province constitutes the second record from both Canada and North America, the other being in Newfoundland.
