Attaching photos of flowers of the tree from which the winged seeds posted earlier come from. Vijayasankar kindly suggested Dipterocarpus turbinatus as the ID. I looked it up and found that this species is critically endangered in the IUCN Red List. I would like to know the exact species name.

Location: Makunda Christian Hospital campus, Karimganj District, Assam

Date: 3rd April 2010

Equipment: Nikon D70 with Nikkor 70-300mm lens

Hi Vijay Ji,
I also think this this is Dipterocarpus turbinatus commonly known as googlejul as suggested by Vijayasankar Ji.

Tanay

Dear Vijay Anand Ismavel,

I have seen these flowers but I have not been able to reach as close as you have reached. I wish to include this picture in my coming field guide on western ghat flora. Pls give your consent and send me a full resolution image. Due credit will be given to you in the book. Regards,
