This study evaluated the influence of environmental variables (altitude, sand and clay percentages, and soil pH, litter and canopy cover) on the distribution of three Spirostreptidae species in an area of southern Amazonia, Cotriguaçu (MT). The protocol of the Program for Research on Biodiversity (PPBio) was adopted as sampling methodology. Two samplings were carried out during the rainy season in 2010/2011. For the sampling, all 12 plots were covered by the module, at least, for two collectors at nighttime, with an average duration of one hour per plot. The environmental variables were collected according to the PPBio program protocol. We collected 317 Spirostreptidae, with predominance of Plusioporus salvadorii (Silvestri) (147 individuals; 46.4 %), followed by Trichogonostreptus (Oreastreptus) mattogrossensis (Silvestri) Acta Biol. Par., Curitiba, 44 (3-4): 159-170. 2015. 167 (90 individuals; 28.4 %) and Urostreptus tampiitauensis (Schubart, 1947) (80 individuals; 25.2 %). The occurrence of P. salvadorii was influenced by clay percentage and altitude, T. mattogrossensis was influenced by clay percentage and U. tampiitauensis was not influenced by these variables. We can conclude that clay percentage and altitude affect the distribution of these Diplopoda species, either directly or indirectly as these variables affect the local floristic composition and this, in turn, the distribution of the species of this group.
