This study provides a systematic account of the subfamily Cetoniinae (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) in Sarawak based on voucher specimens deposited at Sarawak Forest Research Centre and UNIMAS Insect Reference Collection as well as from sampling. A total of 423 specimens of Cetoniinae was recorded in this study with 56 species, 16 genera, and six tribes where a total of 32 species was identified up to genus level only. The six tribes evaluated are Cetoniini, Goliathini, Gymnetini, Stenotarsiini, Taenioderini, and Trichiini with the most abundant species from tribe Taenioderini with 312 individuals (73.76%). The most abundant species in this study were from genus Taeniodera with a total of 243 individuals (57.44%), followed by genus Glycyphana with 62 individuals (14.66%) and genus lxorida with 23 individuals (5.44%). The most abundant species was Taeniodera monacha sumatrana with 132 individuals (31.21%), followed by Taeniodera monacha nigra with 109 individuals (25.77%) and Glycyphana cuculus with 28 individuals (6.62%). The most abundant species which was T. monacha sumatrana followed by T. monacha nigra were recorded as the most diverse in ecological distribution. The highest recorded species was found in mixed dipterocarp forest, with 18 species recorded followed by 17 species recorded in peat swamp forest, and 14 species recorded in riverine forest while the least recorded species was recorded in limestone forest with only one species followed by two species recorded in beach forest, and four species recorded in mangrove forest. A checklist of species examined as well as their ecological distribution was provided in the study.
