Type specimens of 75 taxa of Phasmida have been identified in the Nationaal Natuurhistorisch Museum, Leiden. The taxa are listed alphabetically by species, with the number of specimens, sex and locality data. The material includes species described by Bragg, Bragg & Chan, Gunther, de Haan, Kirby, Lichtenstein, Olivier, and Stoll. The type of pin used was found to be particularly useful as an aid to identification of older material. There are a number of omissions and discrepancies in the published data, these are clarified. Some background information on the original publications and the described material is included.
