India (Andaman Islands), Myanmar, Thailand (West and Peninsular). Also South-east Thailand (Hodel & Vatcharakorn 1998) and Peninsular Malaysia (Dransfield 1979). (T. Evans & K. Sengdala & B. Thammavong & O.V. Viengkham & J. Dransfield, A Synopsis of the Rattans (Arecaceae: Calamoideae) of Laos and Neighbouring Parts of Indochina. 2002)A

Discussion

  • The published photograph of the fruits of Hodel & Vatcharakorn 1804 (presumably in BH) from Prachin Buri, South-east Thailand undoubtedly shows this species. Dransfield (1979) erroneously stated that this species was erect, not climbing. (T. Evans & K. Sengdala & B. Thammavong & O.V. Viengkham & J. Dransfield, A Synopsis of the Rattans (Arecaceae: Calamoideae) of Laos and Neighbouring Parts of Indochina. 2002)A

Biology And Ecology

  • Unknown. (T. Evans & K. Sengdala & B. Thammavong & O.V. Viengkham & J. Dransfield, A Synopsis of the Rattans (Arecaceae: Calamoideae) of Laos and Neighbouring Parts of Indochina. 2002)A

Conservation

  • Occurs only marginally in Indochina; common and of no conservation concern in the Thai-Malay Peninsula. (T. Evans & K. Sengdala & B. Thammavong & O.V. Viengkham & J. Dransfield, A Synopsis of the Rattans (Arecaceae: Calamoideae) of Laos and Neighbouring Parts of Indochina. 2002)A

Common Name

  • None recorded. (T. Evans & K. Sengdala & B. Thammavong & O.V. Viengkham & J. Dransfield, A Synopsis of the Rattans (Arecaceae: Calamoideae) of Laos and Neighbouring Parts of Indochina. 2002)A

Uses

  • None recorded in Indochina. The cane is of good quality and there are trial plantations in Peninsular Thailand (R. Pattanavibool, pers. comm. 1999). (T. Evans & K. Sengdala & B. Thammavong & O.V. Viengkham & J. Dransfield, A Synopsis of the Rattans (Arecaceae: Calamoideae) of Laos and Neighbouring Parts of Indochina. 2002)A
