Resumen

Se estudia por primera vez la fauna de ciempiés escutigeromorfos de la República Dominicana basados en una muestra de 28 individuos colectados en 21 localidades de 12 provincias. Se encontró que esta muestra representa dos especies: Sphendononema guildingii (Newport, 1844) y Dendrothereua linceci (Wood, 1867), ambas especies con una amplia distribución en el Caribe y América tropical. La especie ampliamente introducida y sinantrópica de origen mediterráneo Scutigera coleoptrata (Linnaeus, 1758) nunca ha sido colectada en La Hispaniola. Los ciempiés escutigeromorfos encontrados como fósiles en el ámbar dominicano todavía no han sido apropiadamente estudiados e identificados.
