This study records and discusses the entomological collection in Sarawak, with reference to voucher specimens of the Subfamily Harpactorinae (Heteroptera: Reduviidae) from UNIMAS Zoological Museum, Faculty of Resource Science and Technology, Agricultural Research Centre, Sarawak and Forest Research Centre. A total of 388 specimens comprising 18 genera and 35 species of Harpactorini were evaluated. Cosmolestes picticeps dominated other species in the number of 90 specimens which represented 23.2% of the total number of specimens and it is also the most abundant species from the three repositories. C. picticeps, Eulyes amoena, Isyndus heros and Rhynocoris marginellus were recorded from all the three repositories, hence this indicates that they are considered as the common species encountered in the collections. Most of the Harpactorini recorded from Sarawak were collected from lowland dipterocarp forest and peat swamp forest. Systematic accounts of every species and distribution maps of the species examined are presented.
