Finds at Botanic Island Four

 On the 6th of April, I started to open up the Botanic Island Four to look for some surprises.  Indeed I was pleased to see the Licuala spp. producing a flowering stem, a Bauhinia spp. and a Dipterocarp spp. with the latter  producing red winged fruits.  I would expect more unusual finds in the near future as I begin to clear more of the jungle undergrowth and scout the island for more interesting finds.
