|The Kacang-kacang is not as tall as I expected it to be.|
Here's Shufen taking a photo of the plant while she explains its characteristics.
Api-api ludat (Avicennia officinalis) and on the right Jeruju (Acanthus sp.).
Chengam (Scyphiphora hydrophyllacea). Of course all these plants are more easily distinguished when they have fruits and flowers.
Dungun air (Brownlowia tersa) here and some are fruiting. We are impressed by the large fruits of this one.
Bakau mata buaya (Bruguiera hainesii). It's still flowering! But alas, no propagules were found on the ground.
Mangrove stink bugs (Calliphara nobilis) on the Bruguiera hainesii. Although the larvae of these bugs are found only on the Buta-buta tree (Excoecaria algallocha), the adults may be found under different kinds of mangrove tree leaves.
