Three new species of Gomphandra (Stemonuraceae / Icacinaceae s.l.) are described from Malesia, and a new name is proposed for a misidentified species. Gomphandra palustris is known from peat swamp forests in Borneo, Sarawak, G. halconensis is known from the Philippines, Mindoro, Mt Halcon, and G. conklinii from the Philippines, Ifugao Province, Banaue. Gomphandra rarinervis is offered as a new name for Stemonurus puberulus, which was incorrectly synonymised with G. papuana by Sleumer. This commonly collected taxon is known from Madang and Morobe Provinces in Papua New Guinea and does not overlap in distribution with G. papuana.
