The present catalogue lists data from a total of 95 specimens from 22 species of the millipede collection by the Czech scientist Bohumil Němec (1873–1966) housed in the National Museum in Prague. The material was collected at the turn of the 19th and 20th century in the modern-day Czechia and contains syntypes of Craspedosoma rawlinsii simplex Němec, 1896 [= Craspedosoma rawlinsii rawlinsii Leach, 1814, syn. nov.] and Julus (Leucojulus) coerulans Němec, 1896 [= Kryphioiulus occultus (Koch, 1847)]. The problematic of spelling the name rawlinsii turned to be much complicated than previously thought. Thus, only the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature will have to solve it. Until then, the prevailing usage of rawlinsii is to be maintained.
