The Kalimantan species of Scaphisoma Leach, 1815 are reviewed. The following species are redescribed: S. borneense Pic, 1916, S. lineatopunctatum (Pic, 1916), S. punctatipenne Pic, 1916, S. punctatum (Pic, 1915) and S. submaculatum Pic, 1920. Lectotypes are designated for these species, and for S. oblongum Pic, 1916. Scaphisoma punctatipenne, described as a variety of S. oblongum, is available and raised to species rank. Scaphisoma atrithorax Pic, 1916 is placed in synonymy with Scaphisoma obliquemaculatum Motschulsky 1863. Two new species are described: S. apparatum sp. nov. and S. tarsale sp. nov. A key to the Kalimantan species of Scaphisoma is provided.
