Taxonomy: Polyplectron schleiermacheri Brüggemann, 1877, south-eastern Borneo.
Has been considered a race of P. malacense, but a phylogenetic analysis of male morphology indicates that it is better treated as a full species. Forms superspecies with P. malacense; some authors also include P. emphanum. Monotypic.
