A review of the white-flowered Amorphophallus species in Sarawak is presented. A total of five species are recognized, four of which belong to the Eburneus Group and are restricted to limestone, and moreover, locally endemic: A. eburneus Bogner (Padawan and Tebedu areas), A. brachyphyllus Hett. (Bau), A. juliae sp. nov. (Merirai) and A. niahensis sp. nov. (Niah). A fifth species, Amorphophallus infundibuliformis Hett., A.Dearden & A.Vogel, of doubtful affinity, is widespread and locally abundant on a variety of substrates excluding limestone. A key to the white-flowered species in Sarawak is presented and all species are illustrated.
