A supplement to the treatment of the Orchids of Mount Kinabalu (Wood et al., 1993) is presented below. Included are references to 14 recently described taxa, 21 new records, and 5 taxa that have been reduced to synonymy or have undergone name changes. Our current estimate of the number of orchid taxa on Mount Kinabalu is 745; however, more accurate figures await taxonomic revisions of several problematic genera.
