Abstract: Five species of the subgenus Campomyrma Wheeler, 1911 of the genus Polyrhachis Fr. Smith, 1857 are recorded from Borneo, including P. equina Fr. Smith, 1857 and P. gribodoi Emery, 1887 and three species, P. hashimotoi, P. reidi and P. sukarmani, described as new. Polyrhachis equina and P. gribodoi are placed within the newly erected equina species-group. Polyrhachis hashimotoi is placed within the newly erected xiphias species-group together with P. xiphias Fr. Smith, 1863 from New Guinea and P. shixingensis Wu & Wang, 1995 from China and Vietnam. A key to the workers of Bornean Campomyrma is provided and all species are illustrated.
