Abstract: Descriptions of a Sumatran rhinoceros Dicerorhinus sumatrensis and a Javan rhinoceros Rhinoceros sondaicus specimen, housed in the Hungarian Natural History Museum are given. The Sumatran rhinoceros was probably captured in Peninsular Malaysia in 1894 and purchased by the Municipal Botanical and Zoological Gardens, Budapest, Hungary, whereas the Javan rhinoceros was shot by J. Xántus Hungarian explorer in Java in 1869. Both were later donated to the Hungarian Natural History Museum where they are preserved as mounted specimens and some bones. With 6 figures.
