Parashorea malaanonan

Parashorea malaanonan

Parashorea malaanonan is a species of plant in the Dipterocarpaceae family. The name malaanonan is derived from Tagalog (mala = false and anonang = custard apple) and is a putative vernacular name for this species. It is a large emergent tree, up to 60 m, found in mixed dipterocarp forests on deep friable clay soils. It is found in Borneo and the Philippines. It is found in at least two protected areas (Danum Valley Conservation Area and Kabilli-Sepilok Forest Reserve), elsewhere it is threatened by habitat loss. The timber is a light hardwood sold under the trade name of White Lauan or White Seraya.
