Herpetological explorations and collections from Borneo, including the East Malaysian States of Sarawak and Sabah, as well as the Indonesian Province of Kalimantan, are described. Borneo was far off the commercial trade route of Europe, and consequently, biological explorations of this large tropical island were to commence much later than in other adjacent regions, such as Java and Sumatra. Some of the earliest collectors include James MOTLEY, Alfred Rüssel WALLACE, Odoardo BECCARI and William Temple
