Shorea parvifolia

Aaaaaaah! Finally, we got the mysterious one - Shorea parvifolia (Meranti Sarang Punai). We were wondering why during this masting period, when all Dipterocarpaceae are fruiting .... this parvi, that parvi, all not flowering & fruiting! Why??

Finally, Bluebird nailed one tree deep in the Jungle Fall Valley and confirmed by his very good Nikon bino.

Sorry Plywind, you missed it. We will show you the location if you treat us to a nice lunch of BIG prawn noodles across from BTNR.

Hope you all enjoy the pics, it may be another 8 years before you see another one of these mysterious fruits. Really beautiful with 3 very long wings.

hehe i think the cutest Shorea fruits are, in order:

1. Shorea parvifolia because its so round and small
2. Shorea pauciflora cos its short and stump (ah.. a bit like me haha)
3. Shorea curtisii cos its red so early, so precocious!
4. Shorea leprosula is, er, last cos I haven't found a reason yet to justify its cute-ness.
