Notes

Fairly common big, grey rainforest tree. The big flat, smooth, thin-woody pods withour ridges open on the tree with a loud crack, throwing out the disc-shaped seeds that sail over a large distance from the tree. Slash yellowish to pale pink-brown, hard fibrous, darkening, slightly sticky, with a distinct, often slowly exuding some white latex. Flowers with only one big, white petal. See also PROTA database.
