Eurycoma longifolia Jack. in Malayan Misc. 2: 45.1822; A.W. Bennett in Hook.f. Fl. Brit. India 1: 521. 1875; Nooteb. in Steenis, FI. Males. ser. I. 6: 205.1962.


A.W. Bennett in Hook. f.(l.c.), Kurz (For. Fl. Burma 1: 202. 1877) and Nooteboom (l.c.) report occurrence of this species in the Andaman Islands, probably based on the specimen collected by Helfer. It may be noted that most of the collections of Helfer from Tenasserim (Myanmar) are mixed up with his collections from Andaman as is evidenced from the label ''Tenasserim and Andamans''. It is most likely that the specimen of above species of Helfer might be from Tenasserim. King (in J. Asiat. Soc. Bengal pt; 2. Nat. Hist. 62: 230. 1893) holds similar view. Further, inspite of intensive and extensive explorations, this species could not be collected from the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
