MERSAWA

Anisoptera spp.

Anisoptera spp. of the family Dipterocarpaceae. Native to Malaysia and Indonesia. There are at least a dozen species in the genus Anisoptera that have mersawa 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.

my samples:
