E. Asia - Andaman Islands, southern Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines.
A mid-canopy tree in lowland rain forests, usually on hillsides and ridges, also on limestone; at elevations up to 700 metres, occasionally ascending to 1,400 metres[
A dioecious species, both male and female forms need to be grown if fruit and seed are required[
Seed - we have no specific information for this species but seeds of this genus generally have a hard seed coat and germinate erratically. Filing away some of the seed coat to allow moisture to enter more readily, without damaging the seed, will encourage a faster and more even germination[
