Abstract:

The mantis family Liturgusidae is a small family of praying mantids that is represented by four species in Borneo. Keys to the Bornean taxa are provided with illustrations of the distinguishing features. Distribution maps and illustrations are provided for all the Bornean species; illustrations are also provided for all non-Bornean species of Majangella and Theopompa. Majangella moultoni Giglio-Tos, 1915 is recorded from Thailand for the first time. Theopompa opthalmica (Olivier, 1792) is recorded from peninsular Malaysia for the first time.
