NYATOH

botanical name unknown

There are at least 100 species from over a dozen unrelated genera (a big chunk of the species are from the genus Palaquium) that have ekop 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 but they all appear to be native to Indonesia, India, Southeast Asia, the Philippines, and New Guinea.

my samples:

both sides of a sample plank of nyatoh / Palaquium spp. --- HUGE enlargements are present. This sample was loaned to me by David Clark whom I thank for this and other contributions to the site.

The labeled side has varnish or something on it. This is a very minor example of the kind of crap samples that David got from this particular vendor.
