Geographical Distributions

Calophyllum soulattri is distributed in Vietnam, Cambodia, the Andaman Islands, Thailand, throughout Malesia towards the Solomon Islands and northern Australia.


Calophyllum soulattri is a small to medium-sized tree that can reach up to 30 m tall while its bole measures up to 70 cm in diametre. It is rarely buttressed while spurs or sometimes knee roots are present. The twigs are 4-20 mm long and usually 4-angled while the conical bud is terminal.

The leaves are ovate to elliptical or suboblong, measuring (3.5-)6.5-29(-36) cm long, usually wedge-shaped at the base, acute or acuminate at apex and with (6-)12-18(-21) veins per 5 mm.

The inflorescences are axillary, usually fan-shaped, branched and (3-)7-21-flowered. The flowers are with 4 purplish-black tepals.

The fruit is spherical, measures 9-16(-22) mm long, and with fairly thick and compact outer layer.

Ecology / Cultivation

Calophyllum soulattri is widespread, but in many places is a rather uncommon tree of fairly small dimensions, growing in lowland or lower montane rainforests or sometimes in swamp forests, up to 1700 m altitude. The wood has a density of 400-700 kg/m3 at 15% moisture content and is not very durable.
