Sorry for that, I'm learning these names and yes Madagascar war an obvious mistake. D. bariensis may be what I had intended. Seems the Burmese Rosewood would also be logged to some degree.

Baronii is the predominant species available from Madagascar. Why does it keep getting mentioned in a thread about SE asian RW. That Wingert is most likely cochinchinensis. I have a set in my closet that looks identical. Probably...
