Fieldwork since 2002 has revealed three novel taxa of Schismatoglottis in Sarawak, Malaysian Borneo. Based on the presence of a free ligular portion to the petiolar sheath, these new taxa belong to the Multiflora Group sensu Hay and Yuxammi (2000). Here, these species, Schismatoglottis clausula, S.Y.Wong, S. dulosa S.Y.Wong, and S. jitinae S.Y.Wong are described, and illustrated, and a key to the Multiflora Group in Sarawak is presented.
