    So where IS Withnall, anyway ?
    Buried in an unmarked grave somewhere ? Or buried to the hilt in the rear end of some Isaan wench ?

    I think Withnall is currently Thailand's foremost purveyor of Indian curries. Flogging vinadaloos and such like to the masses on the southern peninsular.

    Stinging or common nettle (Urtica dioica) is, I believe, native to Europe and a few African countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea.

    Thailand has another nasty family member; the Dendrocnide sinuata, the elephant nettle or tree nettle. A decent size shrub, found in evergreen forests.

    Touch the leaves and the little hairs on them will cause a very painful sting. A bit like the European nettle, only 10x stronger. The pain and itchy feeling can last for days, sometimes even longer.

    Synonyms: Urtica ardens, Urtica crenulata, Laportea crenulata, Laporttea postulosa.

    Thai name: กะลังตังช้าง (I think but not 100% sure)
    Thai phonetic: “Kelangtang Chaang", "Han Chaang hai", "Tam yae Chaang"

    Looks like doc leaves, a cure for stingy nettles in the UK.

    Saw many of those on withnall and my deforestation project. Needless to say we hacked them into extinction.
