Latzelia is an extinct genus of scutigeromorph centipedes, and the type and only genus of the family Latzeliidae. It existed during the Carboniferous in what is now Illinois (found in Mazon Creek fossil beds). It was described by Samuel Hubbard Scudder in 1890, and the type species, and only known species, is Latzelia primordialis. The genus name honors Austrian zoologist Robert Latzel.
