LEMONWOOD

botanical name unknown

I have found at least 3 dozen species from almost as many genera that have lemon or lemonwood as all or part of one or more of their common names, and I have no idea which of them are represented on this page except as specifically stated below.

my samples:
NOTE: these pics were all taken in very bright incandescent lighting --- colors will vary under other lighting conditions


both sides of a sample plank of lemonwood / Xymalos monospora --- HUGE enlargements are present. This sample was loaned to me by Mark Peet whom I thank for this and other contributions to the site.
