The first two collections of Pauropoda from the Canary Islands have been examined. Locality and habitat records are given for 176 specimens representing 4 genera and 14 species, all from the family Pauropodidae. Most species are widely distributed and common to Europe and North Africa. No endemic species has been discovered. A lectotype has been designated for Allopauropus (Decapauropus) rhopalophorus Remy and the division of Stylopauropus pedunculatus (Lubbock) into subspecies is discussed.
