A total of five species are included in this treatment of Balanophora (Balanophoraceae) including B. fungosa subsp. fungosa and B. elongata which are new records for Borneo. All five species occur on Mount Kinabalu. We provide brief descriptions, a key to differentiate all five species, as well as illustrations to assist in their identification.
