This checklist includes all known Bornean species, giving the page number on which a fuller account can be found, a broad categorisation of the type of geographical distribution and Bornean habitat preference.

In the geographical distribution the term Wallacea indicates the presence of the species in Sulawesi and the Philippines,
*means shared with Sumatra only and **means shared with Peninsular Malaysia only. The suggested habitat preference is bracketed if based on less than five specimens.
