Abstract

A catalogue of type specimens of Psocoptera (Insecta: Psocodea) destroyed in the fire of 2.IX.2018 at the National Museum of Rio de Janeiro (MNRJ) is presented. 20 holotypes and six paratypes, included in four families of Psocoptera (Cladiopsocidae Smithers, 1972; Dolabellopsocidae Eertmoed, 1973; Epipsocidae Pearman, 1936 and Ptiloneuridae Roesler, 1940), all described by New (1972) and deposited in the MNRJ were destroyed during the fire. The taxa are presented alphabetically by suborders, infraorders, families, and genera, followed by species (updated to the valid name), bibliographic citation, type category, description of the type condition with collection number and method of preservation. When necessary, comments are added.
