(also known as Sal or Daun Payong in Malay)
Found this stunning group of young joeys at the forest floor of the 'Rainforest' at 1Utama, Damansara Utama in Petaling Jaya.
At first thought, I might have stumbled onto the lesser seen, much endangered Diamond Joey (J. magnifica) based on the silverish underside of the leaves. However, it was not to be. There were no fine white hairs at all. :(

So similar in outlook to the J. magnifica but nonetheless, quite happy with this latest common Joey find.
