Catalogue of the types of the Phasmid collection of the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle de Paris (Insecta, Phasmatodea)

This paper provides the commented list of the 824 type specimens of stick-insects of the collection of the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle of Paris, corresponding to 319 species (including 287 currently valid species). The catalogue was made together with the digitalization and the databasing of the collection; it comes with an electronic document illustrating all of the specimens which were processed. Lectotypes are here designated for six species (Anisacantha albogeniculata Redtenbacher, 1906; Bacteria maroniensis Chopard, 1911; Gongylopus adiposus Brunner von Wattenwyl, 1907; Gratidia nimbana Chopard, 1955; Parectatosoma mocquerysi Finot, 1898 Tropidoderus exiguus Redtenbacher, 1908), and Oxyartes spinulosus Redtenbacher, 1908 is restored as a valid species.
