Borneo is one of the richest areas for mycoheterotrophic plants, and six species including one endemic have been recorded for the genus Sciaphila Blume, Triuridaceae. Here, we recognize two previously undescribed species of Sciaphila from botanical surveys in Betung Kerihun National Park, West Kalimantan, Borneo, and provide detailed morphological accounts of both new species, S. betung-kerihunensis and S. brevistyla . We also provide a key to the species of Sciaphila in Borneo.
