Given the name "Guest Tree" on account of this tree being host or residence of various epiphytes, lizards, and snakes in its natural habitat.

Uses: Bark and leaves as insecticide to head lice, leaves steeped in hot water for eyes wash, bark fiber for cordage, and wood for furnitures and fuel.

I first have mistaken it as the "banaba tree" but after looking at the shots of the flowers I got intrigued at the star-like pods. It took me long to stumble on the identity of this tree I found beside the Garcia's "Kapehan" near the plaza area in Pulupandan.
