Xylocarpus granatum

Xylocarpus granatum

Thanks to rusty botanical knowledge, I couldn't tell which Xylocarpus species this was. Thankfully, someone in the group had the "Guide to the mangroves of Singapore I".
me:" eh, which xylocarpus is this; I know got two."
hk:" according to the guidebook Xylocarpus granatum has yellowish or greenish, smooth and flaking bark (vs. dark grey, non-flaking fissured bark in X. moluccensis)."
me: "okay, easy peasy."
