New species, Trigoniophthalmus lineatus from Adygea and T. minor and T. setosus from Stavropol Territory, are described. The age-sexual structure of two populations of T. minor and five populations of T. setosus from the environs of Kislovodsk, Pyatigorsk, and Zheleznovodsk is analyzed. One species of the family Machilidae in one habitat of the forest ecosystems and four species in the meadow associations of the subalpine belt are considered.
