The hairless Nephelium spp. doesn't look like N. xerospermoides nor Dimocarpus longan ssp. malesianus for that matter; or could it be?

Alupag is the rough longan and the small rambutan could well be a true rambutan seedling fruit.

Thank you Alex. I got the same conclusion and will named it like that. Only three seeds I keep, it's less good than the other Keranji.

How would Dialium Indum end up in Reunion?  Especially when closer relatives are around, perhaps like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dialium_madagascariense

Also keep in mind this is a rainforest tree, so it would likely need the stress of breaching a canopy to fruit, - 20-30 years?  With little sustenance, difficulty in planting as a crop or even decoration.. how or why would Indum a SE asian native end up in Africa. 

Don't know how they are different, but the Dialium wikipedia page lists several species, just that Indum is 'general' or most well known scientific name.  It would make sense that there are several almost indistinguishable species, because of their distance apart from each other.

on a side note... This is one of the best hardwoods in the world, especially for house building because of the long straight bole of this rainforest canopy tree.

Dialium indum and laurinum are two slow growing trees here in Reunion Island. Less than 2 meters tall in five years ! May be next century the children of my children will built a house for their sons !
