21 species of Pauropoda are reported from the U.S.A. They belong to 4 genera in Pauropodidae and 1 genus in Eurypauropodidae. 6 species new to science are described and figured: Allopauropus quadrimaculatus, Stylopauropus corrugatus, S. crassimanus, S. pocahontas, S. fraternus and Eurypauropus washingtonensis. One of these species, Stylopauropus corrugatus, has some peculiar features not earlier observed in the genus and a new subgenus, Propepauropus, is proposed for it. Pauropods are reported for the first time from Georgia, Virginia and West Virginia. New species are reported from Washington, Oregon, North Carolina, Ohio, Massachusetts and New York. The ranges of the species are incompletely known but almost half of the species occur also outside the Nearctic.
