Where uncertainty is identified, the status of putative type specimens for 87 species group names of Scarabaeoidea (Coleoptera) housed in the Queensland Museum is reviewed. This can relate to outdated concepts and terminologies used in the descriptions, names that were not subsequently published, or material that was seen by the authors of the species but not listed in the original publication. Specimens are identified by their registry labels, labels summarising any changes to their status were attached to each specimen, and the museum’s electronic registers were updated. Full label data are given to allow future recognition.
