Burma padauk, also commercially important at times, is also known as pradoo and mai pradoo.
It is also called Angola padauk and brown African padauk, most likely because closely related species include African padauk (Pterocarpus soyauxii), Andaman padauk (Pterocarpus dalbergiodes) and Burma padauk (Pterocarpus macrocarpus).
The color varies log by log, but Burma padauk is generally more orange in color and African and Andaman padauk generally have more vibrant red orange colors.
