Bruguiera cylindrica @ SBWR by Sherlynn

This picture of the flowers of the Bruguiera cylindrica was taken at about 9:28 am on the 26th of November at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve (Mangrove Boardwalk).

edit: yangsf has kindly pointed out that this is a picture of Bruguiera cylindrica actually :) and not Nyrieh (Xylocarpus granatum)
The leaves of Nyrieh do not grow in a whorl and are compound leaves, not simple leaves as shown in the picture posted. The flowers are also different. Below is a pic of Xylocarpus granatum, leaves :) "
