The experts id-ed as Mitrephora maingayi, same place corner of the forest next to the open area where you saw the butterflies puddling at BTNR.

Hi Plain Tiger,
Thanks for sharing.
Could you give location of this beautiful flowering tree to those who didnt join the butterfly puddling at BTNR?
Cheers!

Hi Angie,
Is at the open area next to the bottom of the road up the hill, across the BTNR visitor center..go the the side where the trees are, at one corner.
Nparks personale tell me this is the second bloom after 2 months first bloom, all welcome to see.
Cheers,
PT
