Abstract: Type specimens from the insect collections deposited in the Department of
Entomology, National Museum, Prague, are currently being catalogued. In this
part of the catalogue we deal with Hemiptera: Sternorrhyncha. This group is
namely represented in the museum by the whitefly collection of Jiří Zahradník
and the scale insect collections of Jiří Zahradník and Josef Řeháček,
while the psyllid material was mostly collected by Jiří Dlabola and other
workers of the department and identified by Marianna M. Loginova, Daniel
Burckhardt and Pavel Lauterer (material from the expeditions of the National
Museum to Iran in 1970s is particularly numerous and scientifically valuable).
We list the types of 36 taxa (3 in Aleyrodomorpha, 3 in Coccomorpha, and
30 in Psyllomorpha), including holotypes or syntypes of 14 taxa (3 in
Aleyrodomorpha, 2 in Coccomorpha, and 9 in Psyllomorpha).
