Kamani, or True Kamani, Calophyllum inophyllum, is a Non-native tree from Polynesia. False Kamani, Terminalia Catappa, is a naturalized non-native tree, both found throughout the islands. Perhaps because the seed floats when dry, it is easily spread in diverse areas around the islands. Once you know what to look for, it is easy to tell the difference between these two species. The cut wood, however, is difficult to differentiate, at least for me. The grain and figure in Kamani, as well as the color, is very distinctive.
