The type material of Coccinellidae described by F.W. Hope and by E. Mulsant from the collections of F.W. Hope and J.O. Westwood is reviewed. Lectotypes for Hope's species are designated (with a single exception) from material in the British Museum (Natural History). The majority oflectotypes for Mulsant's species described from Hope's and Westwood's material is located in the Hope Entomological Collections, University Museum, Oxford. The identity of a species is discussed where confusion concerning a name has occurred in the past, or where the current interpretation differs from the original description or type material. Brachiacantha bipartita Mulsant is resurrected from synonymy with B. westwoodii Mulsant. The following new synonymies are recorded (valid name first): Ballida brahamae Mulsant = Palaeoeneis aurantiaca Crotch = Eoneda sumatrensis Iablokoff-Khnzorian; Calvia quattuordecimguttata (Linnaeus) = Oenopia dorsonotata Mulsant; Calvia vulnerata (Hope) = C. uniramosa (Hope) = C. flaccida Mulsant = C. vishnu (Crotch) = C. krishna (Crotch) = C. buddha (Crotch); Coelophora saucia (Mulsant) = Lemnia melanota Mulsant; Rodolia sexnotata (Mulsant) = R. guerinii (Crotch); Scymnus nubilus Mulsant = S. curtisii Mulsant = S. lateralis Sicard. The following are new combinations: Afidentula stephensi (Mulsant) (from Epilachna); Horniolus guimeti (Mulsant) (from Scymnus); Rhyzobius waterhousei (Mulsant) (from Scymnus); Rodolia sexnotata (Mulsant) (from Epilachna).
