Diersity of Wild flower trees in ThaiLand
Meliaceae is a large family containing 49–50 genera and ca 620 species and distributed in pantropical area expanding to temperate zone (Mabberley et al., 2007). In Southeast Asia, species of Meliaceae are widely found from lowlands to higher elevation highlands, and are one of important components in tropical and subtropical evergreen forests. In Thailand, 18 genera, 84 species, 3 subspecies and 4 varieties
were recognized (Wongprasert et al., 2011; Pooma & Suddee, 2014).
During our botanical surveys in Kaeng Krachan National Park, Phetchaburi Province and Suan Hin Pha Ngam Forest Park, Loei Province, we found two species of Meliaceae which are undocumented in Thailand. To contribute to the Flora of Thailand, we here provide the new records of them based on our materials and herbarium specimens with their descriptions and photographs.
