Type specimens from the collection of the polyneopteran insect orders (Dermaptera, Blattodea, Orthoptera, Phasmatodea) deposited in the Department of Entomology, National Museum, Prague are catalogued. We provide precise information about types of 100 taxa (5 species of Dermaptera, 3 species of Blattodea, 4 species of Phasmatodea, 55 species of Caelifera, and 33 species of Ensifera), including holotypes of 38 taxa. The year of publication of Calliptamus tenuicercis anatolicus Ma?an, 1952 and Calliptamus tenuicercis iracus Ma?an, 1952 are corrected. The authorship of the names traditionally ascribed to J. Obenberger is discussed in detail. Only the name Podisma alpinum carinthiacum Obenberger, 1926 is available since the publication by OBENBERGER (1926a). ‘Stenobothrus (Stauroderus) biguttulus ssp. ? bicolor Charp. 1825’ and ‘Stenobothrus (Stauroderus) ssp. ? collinus Karny’ sensu OBENBERGER (1926a,b) refer to Gryllus bicolor Charpentier, 1825 and Stauroderus biguttulus var. collina Karny, 1907, respectively, which both have to be considered available already since their original descriptions by CHARPENTIER (1825) and KARNY (1907).
