The type-material of Phasmatodea, described by Johann Jacob KAUP. Senckenbergiana biologica 81(1/2): 133-145, 23 figs. Abstract. The type-material of 23 taxa of the insect order Phasmatodea described by Johann Jakob KAUP and housed in the Hessisches Landesmuseum, Darmstadt, Germany [HLDH], and Senckenberg-Museum, Franfurt am Main, Germany [SMF] is listed. If possible, the actual taxonomic position of each taxon is provided. Lectotypes are designated for Clonistria cacica KAUP 1871, Ceroys capreolus KAUP 1871, Lonchodes duivenbodei KAUP 1871, Acanthoderus hystrix KAUP 1871, Pachymorpha novaeguineae KAUP 1871, Acanthoderus occipitalis KAUP 1871, Ophicrania striaticollis KAUP 1871, and Necroscia vipera KAUP 1871. Ceroys capreolus KAUP 1871, is found to be a new synonym of Sermyle mexicana (SAUSSURE 1859), Lonchodes duivenbodei KAUP 1871, a new synonym of Periphetes forcipatus (BATES 1865). Bacteria cacica KAUP 1871, is transferred to Clonistria STÅL 1875, Haplopus grayi KAUP 1871, to Diapherodes GRAY 1835, Cladoxerus insignis KAUP & VON HEYDEN 1871, to Hermarchus STÅL 1875

This catalogue lists all genera and species of stick insects recorded or described from New Zealand. Genera are listed in alphabetical order within established subfamilies and tribes. Some taxonomic changes are made, with major changes as follows: 2 new genera in the subfamily Pachymorphinae are erected -Niveaphasma (type species -Pachymorpha annulata Hutton 1898) and Asteliaphasma (type species - Spinotectarchus jucundus Salmon 1991). Mimarchus tarsatus Carl 1913 is reduced to synonymy under Argosarchus horridus (White 1846), resulting in Mimarchus Carl 1913 becoming a synonym of Argosarchus Hutton 1898. Lectotypes are designated for Argosarchus schauinslandi Brunner 1907, Clitarchus interruptelineatus Brunner 1907, Clitarchus laeviusculus Stål 1875, Micrarchus parvulus Carl 1913, Micrarchus tarsatus Carl 1913 and Pachymorpha bouvieri Brunner 1907. Keys to adults and eggs of genera are given. The bibliography includes all references containing descriptions of species recorded or described from New Zealand.
