One thought on “Nypa fruticans

  1. Thanks for a nice article.
    However, there is a factual error about the habitat of Nypa palms in Japan. Funaura in Iriomote island is not the only habitat. You can also see them growing in the wild on Uchibanari island a few km off Iriomote.

    There is another factual error with the article about the habitats of Satakentia. Not only Ishigaki island but also Iriomote island has a large population of Satakentia (near the upper part of Nakama river). Individual trees are often seen in many areas of the island once you go inside the jungle.
