Flora of
Peninsular India
with keys at
species links, if any
:

Ailanthus integrifolia subsp. calycina (India (West Bengal, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Nagaland, Mizoram, Tripura,
Meghalaya), Bhutan, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Java as per
Catalogue of Life)

Pl. go through Ailanthus (Simaroubaceae) page with comparative images of species in efloraofindia. On clicking the link of species, one can check the complete details. Genus pages generally give details of most of the species found in India.

I request you to pl. go through & point out mistakes, if any. I hope this will aid in identifications in future. If anybody can send images of other species of this genus (for incorporation in the website), if any, or can identify unidentified images, it will be really nice.


Beautifully inserted,

Ailanthus altissima is very common in Shimla hills. It us highly invasive and spread to many new areas in the recent years.
