Hopea parviflora, commonly known as Thambakam, is a species of tree belonging to the Dipterocarpaceae family. It is native to the tropical rainforests of Southeast Asia, including countries like Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, and Myanmar.

Thambakam is a large evergreen tree that can reach impressive heights of up to 50 meters (164 feet) with a straight and cylindrical trunk. The bark is smooth and grayish-brown, becoming rough and fissured with age. The leaves are simple, alternate, and have an elliptical shape, with a glossy dark green upper surface and a pale green underside.

One of the notable features of Thambakam is its flowers. The tree produces small, fragrant flowers that are typically white or cream-colored. The flowers are arranged in dense clusters, and each flower has five petals. These blooms attract various pollinators, including bees and butterflies.

Thambakam is a valuable timber species known for its durable and termite-resistant wood. The wood is commonly used in construction, furniture making, and other carpentry applications. In addition to its commercial value, the tree also plays a significant ecological role by providing habitat for various wildlife species and contributing to the overall biodiversity of the rainforest ecosystem.

Due to habitat loss and unsustainable logging practices, Thambakam populations have faced declines in some regions. Efforts are being made to conserve and protect this species to ensure its long-term survival.
