Zoologische Mededelingen is a peer-reviewed open access scientific journal that publishes papers and monographs on animal systematics. The publisher is the National Museum of Natural History Naturalis in The Netherlands. The first issue of Zoologische Mededeelingen appeared in 1915, as the official journal of Naturalis' predecessor 's Rijks Museum van Natuurlijke Historie. Earlier, the museum published Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle des Pays-Bas (volumes I-XIV, 1862-1908) and Notes from the Leyden Museum (volumes I-XXXVI, 1879-1914), which mainly covered the fauna of The Netherlands and the former Dutch colonies.

Zoologische Mededelingen is indexed in The Zoological Record and BIOSIS.[1] A complete backlist of published volumes is presented on the institutional repository of Naturalis.[2]
