The epithet name is derived from the Latin words, ‘grandis’ means large, referring to its large leaves. This tree has straights bole with diameter 10-78 cm.

Anisophyllea grandis can be found in Peninsular Malaysia (Kedah, Penang and Perak). It is a common tree in some places such as Bukit Enggang FR, Kedah and on Penang Hill, Penang. It inhabits primary lowland dipterocarp to lower montane forests to 910 m altitude. It can also be found on hillsides, ridge tops and secondary forests (Kiew et al., 2018).
