The species Potoxylon melagangai is the only species in the genus, similar to the closely related Eusideroxylon zwageri; they are grouped together under the subtribe Eusideroxylineae in the tribe Cryptocaryeae. In the Malaysian states on Borneo, Potoxylon and Eusideroxylon are differentiated by the native names Melagangai and Belian, respectively. Internationally, both species are collectively known as Borneo ironwood and classified as heavy hardwood due to their natural durability and resistance to pest attacks in the terrestrial and marine environments. Melagangai usually occurs in the main canopy of the forest but is commonly not the largest tree of the primary tropical rainforests.
