The wood is botanically classified in the Ormosia genus of which as many as twenty-six species may grow in China. Seven different species are reportedly utilized in arts and crafts (furniture).

Some Ormosia species are threatened by habitat destruction, while the Hainan Ormosia (O. howii) is probably extinct already.
