Plectocomia Collection/Collector

Young Kachin man holding the fruits of Plectocomia assamica Griff. - which is a pretty rare sight (see Shooting Plectocomia). When I look at this image, I remember all that was involved to collect the specimen, but I am also struck as much by the collector as the colleciton. This young man was quiet, with an easy smile, and  a very hard worker in the field. He's the one in the longyi (same shirt) dragging the rattan out to the road at 1:16 in this clip. Wonder what he has been doing for the past 8 years?
