Type specimens from the collection of beetles (Coleoptera) deposited in the Department of Entomology, National Museum, Prague, are currently being catalogued. In this part of the catalogue dealing with the Scarabaeoidea, we present precise information about the types of 12 taxa of the tribe Onitini, 169 taxa of Onthophagini, 12 taxa of Phanaeini, four taxa of Scarabaeini and one taxon of Sisyphini. The corrected spellings of species-group names originally published as Onthophagus sürmelii Petrovitz, 1963 and Phanaeus palaeno exisicornis Balthasar, 1939 are proposed.
