There were 60 families of dicotyledons collected while the monocotyledons were represented by 8 families. Euphorbiaceae was the most speciose family with 18 species followed by Rubiaceae with 15 species. The largest genera were Diospyros and Syzygium with 7 species each. A total of 13 Peninsular Malaysia endemic taxa were found here including Fordia unifoliata which is endemic to the Perak state.
