Beautiful pics.
Just wanted to clarify, this now belongs to family, Lecythidaceae.
The family contains 3 subfamilies (source: Wikipedia):

Foetidioideae (Foetidiaceae). Madagascar. Includes only Foetidia.
Planchonioideae (including Barringtoniaceae). Restricted to the Old
World tropics.
Lecythidoideae (Lecythidaceae). Restricted to the New World tropics.
Regards
Pankaj
