Phylogenetic relationships within Araceae tribe Schismatoglottideae are elucidated based on nuclear ITS and plastid matK. Thirty genera are recognised, composed of 13 pre-existing genera (Apoballis, Aridarum, Bakoa, Bucephalandra, Fenestratarum, Galantharum, Ooia, Phymatarum, Pichinia, Piptospatha, Schismatoglottis, Schottariella and Schottarum), five resurrected genera (Colobogynium, Gamogyne, Heteroaridarum, Hottarum and Rhynchopyle) and 11 new genera: Bakoaella, Bidayuha, Burttianthus, Gosong, Hera, Kiewia, Nabalu, Pursegloveia, Naiadia, Tawaia and Toga. Except for Kiewia, all newly described genera are endemic to Borneo. Schismatoglottis remains imperfectly delineated despite resolution of a well-supported corpus defined by hapaxanthic stems and containing the nomenclature type. The research continues to show that Borneo supports extraordinarily rich and diverse aroid flora.
