40 supra-mundane types of consciousness:

1. The First Jhāna Sotāpatti Path-consciousness together with initial application, sustained application, joy, happiness, and one-pointedness

2. The Second Jhāna Sotāpatti Path-consciousness together with sustained application, joy, happiness, and one-pointedness

3. The Third Jhāna Sotāpatti Path-consciousness together with joy, happiness, and one-pointedness

4. The Fourth Jhāna Sotāpatti Path-consciousness together with happiness and one-pointedness

5. The Fifth Jhāna Sotāpatti Path-consciousness together with equanimity and one-pointedness

These are the five types of Sotāpatti Path-consciousness. So are the Sakadāgāmī Path-consciousness, Anāgāmī Path-consciousness, and Arahatta Path-consciousness, making twenty classes of consciousness. Similarly there are twenty classes of Fruit-consciousness. Thus, there are forty types of supra mundane consciousness.

(from Abhidhamma, Dhammasangani)
