Abstract

Hanguana major Airy Shaw, a highly distinctive but hitherto taxonomically muddled species is re-delimitated and shown to be restricted to a highland area centred on Gunung Kinabalu, Sabah, with a single collection from Limbang, Sarawak. Airy Shaw’s original Latin description is amended to omit spurious morphological data, and presented in English. One element of the plate accompanying the original publication, determined then as Hanguana malayana (Jack) Merr.), is described as a novel species: H. loii Mohd Fahmi, Sofiman Othman & P.C.Boyce, endemic to SW Sarawak. A key to the described Bornean Hanguana species is provided; H. major and H. loii are illustrated. Lastly, the hitherto unknown male inflorescences and flowers of H. bakoensis Siti Nurfazilah, Sofiman Othman & P.C.Boyce are described.
