Shorea ?curtisii
Originally uploaded by lekowala.

This is probably Shorea curtisii, Dipterocarpaceae, as it has three wings and the size of the mature fruit (centre) seems right. It fruits every 5-10 years after severe drought. The last masting event for Singapore was thought to be 6 years ago. The fruits littered the forest floor. BTNR, 20 June 2005.
