POS LB 242 18

This species belongs to Dipterocarpaceae, a family of hardwood tropical trees, diverse in Borneo. The image shows a split in the fruit and a small tail emerging. This is the radicle, or first root of the seedling. One of the characteristics of this species is that the fruits germinate almost as soon as they hit the ground, quite a common character of tropical rainforest trees.
