Mount Trusmadi or Trus Madi (Malay: Gunung Trusmadi) is Malaysia's second highest mountain at 2,642 metres (8,668 ft). It lies in the state of Sabah, close to Mount Kinabalu, on the island of Borneo. The mountain supports a wide range of unique flora and fauna, perhaps most notably Nepenthes macrophylla, a species of pitcher plant.[1][2][3]

The natural hybrid Nepenthes × trusmadiensis is named after the mountain.[4][5]
