abstract Two new species of the genus Cylindroiulus Verhoeff, 1894, C. julesvernei and C. oromii, are described from the subterranean ecosystem of Madeira Island, Portugal. Species are illustrated with photographs and diagrammatic drawings. The new species belong to the Cylindroiulus madeirae-group, an insular species swarm distributed in the archipelagos of Madeira and the Canary Islands. We discuss the differences between the new species and their relatives and present information on the subterranean environment of Madeira. An updated overview of the subterranean biodiversity of millipedes in Macaronesia is also provided.

funding text This study was supported by the SYNTHESYS Project (DK-TAF-3352), financed by European Community Research Infrastructure Action under the FP7 Capacities Program, and by Fauna Iberica X (Ref. CGL2010-22267C07-01), which allowed A. S. R. to visit the Natural History Museum of Denmark. We are grateful to Marian Ramos for providing the support from Fauna Iberica, to Elvio Nunes for making types and photo of living specimen of C. oromii available for this study, and to David Koon-Bong Cheung for all kinds of help during A. S. R.'s stay in Copenhagen.
