Shorea macrophylla (engkabang jantong) in its typical expression with glossy glabrous maroon or green caducous stipules and thinly chartaceous leaf blades is largely confined to NW Borneo west of the Lupar, occurring gregariously along riverbanks and adjacent flood plains in the lowlands. In the westerly part of its range S. macrophylla is often admixed with S. splendida. Both species, together with podzol-restricted S. stenoptera, are important sources of the fat-rich engkabang nuts that provide valuable periodic income to local people, and which potentially are a significant element of sustainable indigenous agroforestry
