The diversity of Dipterocarpaceae in Angola is updated to 24 taxa, two species of Marquesia and 22 species and subspecies of Monotes. A new species is described and four new records (three species and one subspecies) are added to the Flora of Angola. The new species, Monotes paivae, occurs in the province of Bié, central Angola. Its diagnostic characters are a persistent indumentum on the entire upper surface of leaves and a woollytomentose indumentum in the lower surface of adult leaves. A key to the species and the respective descriptions is presented. The species of Monotes endemic in the country are mapped and their conservation status is discussed.
