Dacryodes is a genus of about 60 species of trees in the family Burseraceae. The generic name is from the Greek dakruon meaning "tear(drop)", referring to how resin droplets form on the bark surface.
Dacryodes species grow as small to medium-sized trees. Their bark is smooth to scaly with pale sapwood. Flowers are unisexual. The fruits feature a fleshy and thick pericarp. The fruit of D. rostrata is considered edible in Borneo.
Distribution and habitat
Dacryodes species grow naturally in tropical America, Africa and Asia. The habitats range from lowland to submontane forests from sea-level to 1,500 metres (5,000 ft) altitude.
