Endiandra hypotephra (Lauraceae)

Endiandra hypotephra probably wp39

I must make a public declaration that I am still struggling with identifying Laurels, but they are certainly an incredible interesting and fascinating group. Certainly they test a person’s ability for observation in ways that few other plant groups will.

The identity of this laurel was kindly suggested by someone on Flickr and I await a chance to see what I expect to be pink blossoms to be sure.

About David Tng

I am David Tng, a hedonistic botanizer who pursues plants with a fervour. I chase the opportunity to delve into various aspects of the study of plants. I have spent untold hours staring at mosses and allied plants, taking picture of pollen, culturing orchids in clean cabinets, counting tree rings, monitoring plant flowering times, etc. I am currently engrossed in the study of plant ecology (a grand excuse to see 'anything I can). Sometimes I think of myself as a shadow taxonomist, a sentimental ecologist, and a spiritual environmentalist - but at the very root of it all, a "plant whisperer"!
