Seven new species of Aridarum are described and illustrated: Aridarum pendek S.Y.Wong, S.L.Low & P.C.Boyce and A. velutandrum S.Y.Wong, S.L.Low & P.C. Boyce [Sarawak, Malaysian Borneo]; A. alatense S.Y.Wong, S.L.Low & P.C.Boyce, A. surukense S.Y.Wong, S.L.Low & P.C. Boyce, and A. zygosetum S.Y.Wong, S.L.Low & P.C.Boyce [Kalimantan Barat and Kalimantan Tengah, Indonesian Borneo]; and A. hebe S.Y.Wong, S.L.Low & P.C.Boyce [Kalimantan Utara, Indonesian Borneo]. Aridarum caulescens var. angustifolium Bogner & Nicolson is shown to represent a further undescribed species from Sarawak, and is here published as Aridarum orestum S.Y.Wong, S.L.Low & P.C.Boyce. Together these seven novelties take the genus Aridarum to 21 accepted, described species. An identification key to all species is provided.

The most recent treatment for Aridarum (Bogner & Hay, 2000) recognized nine species, of which one (A. rostratum Bogner & A. Hay) was taxonomically novel, one (A. borneense (M. Hotta) Bogner & A. Hay) represented a new combination resulting from sinking Heteroaridarum M.Hotta into Aridarum, and one was treated as incompletely known.
