Apalatoa bantamensis (Hassk.) Baillon

Touchiroa bantamensis Hassk.
Understorey tree up to 16 m tall and 35 cm dbh. Stipules ca. 4 mm long.
Leaves alternate, compound but seemingly simple at first glance, leaflets penni-veined, glabrous, venation conspicuous and
looping. Flowers ca. 6 mm diameter, white-yellowish, placed in very long
racemes. Fruits ca. 70 mm diameter, green, dehiscent pods.
In undisturbed mixed dipterocarp forests up to 100 m altitude. On alluvial
sites. In secondary forests usually present as a pre-disturbance remnant tree.
Java, Borneo (Sabah?, East-Kalimantan).
Possibly misidentified because the only known specimen from Borneo looks
very similar to Crudia reticulata, although with very long inflorescences.
