Pterocarpus indicus (commonly known as Amboyna woodMalay padaukPapua New Guinea rosewoodPhilippine mahoganyAndaman redwoodBurmese rosewoodnarra[3] and asana in the Philippines, angsana, or Pashu padauk) is a species of Pterocarpus native to southeastern Asia, northern Australasia, and the western Pacific Ocean islands, in Cambodia, southernmost ChinaEast TimorIndonesiaMalaysia,[4] Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, the Ryukyu Islands, the Solomon IslandsThailand, and Vietnam.[5]

Pterocarpus indicus was one of two species (the other being Eysenhardtia polystachya) used as a source for the 16th- to 18th-century traditional diuretic known as lignum nephriticum.[6]

Many populations of Pterocarpus indicus are seriously threatened. It is extinct in Vietnam and possibly in Sri Lanka and Peninsular Malaysia.[1] It was declared the national tree of the Philippines in 1934 by Governor-General Frank Murphy of the Insular Government of the Philippine Islands through Proclamation No. 652.[7]
