S. ?elliptica auct. non
Shorea exelliptica is a species of plant in the Dipterocarpaceae family. This species has previously been confused with Shorea elliptica and the species name is derived to highlight this point (ex = excluded from).
It is an emergent tree, up to 60 metres (200 ft) tall, found in mixed dipterocarp forest on yellow clay and sandy clay soils on sedimentary rock. S. exelliptica is found in Peninsular Malaysia and Borneo. It is found in at least two protected areas (Lambir Hills and Gunung Mulu National Parks).
