Crepidium bahanense (Hand.-Mazz.) S.C.Chen & J.J.Wood is reported from Hong Kong (China) for the first time. It was known earlier from Yunnan (China) and Loei (Thailand). Information on type, morphological description, flowering phenology, habitat and conservation assessment is provided for the species. This brings the total number of documented wild orchids in Hong Kong to 142 taxa, including two more orchids that are yet to be identified.
