|A new species of stone oak (Lithocarpus pulongtauensis) has recently been published by the Annales Botanici Fennici.
The species is named in honor of the recently gazetted protected area in the Kelabit Highlands, the Pulong Tau National Park, Sarawak, Malaysia. This species has been collected on the northern slopes of Mt. Kinabalu, where Dr. Cannon encountered a rather large population, and in the Kelabit Highlands. The nuts are enclosed in an unusual cupule, that is quite dark, the material is rather corky, and the large scales are fused.
