Abstract: The Mammal Department at the Museum of Comparative Zoology houses name-bearing types of 342 species-group taxa of Recent mammals. The type collection consists of 327 holotypes, 2 lectotypes, 4 complete syntype series, and 9 partial syntype series. This catalogue notes information on the type locality, collector, date of collection, present condition, original publication, and synonyms for all name-bearing types in the Mammal Department. Comments on the taxonomic and historical importance of many type specimens are included. Lectotypes for a number of taxa are designated for purposes of taxonomic consistency.
