ABSTRACT. The millipedes collected by Prof. Manuel Baena in Andalusian caves in the provinces Córdoba and Jaén, are treated. This material contains not only some species already known from the area, but also three new species described here. Each of these three species belongs to its own family: Archipolydesmus cordubaensis sp.n. (Polydesmidae) and Psichrosoma (nom.n. for Psychrosoma Mauriès, 1971, preoccupied) baeticaense sp.n. (Vandeleumatidae) from caves in Córdoba, while Ceratosphys jabaliensis sp.n. (Opisthocheiridae) from a cave in Jaén.
