A synopsis of Indo-Burmese Combretaceae (Abstract: A systematic treatment of the native Combretaceae in the Indo-Burmese region, including Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Myanmar, is presented in a synoptic way. Four genera, 50 species and seven varieties are recognized and treated with keys to the genera and species, nomenclature, relevant synonymy, typifications, habitat, and distribution. A total of 22 names have been lectotypified, including second-step lectotypes for two names. Neotypes are designated here for 11 names and an epitype for one name. New varietal ombinations have also been proposed for three names, namely Terminalia coronata var. parviflora, T. pendula var. fischeri, and T. pendula var. phillyreifolia.)

Species, genera & family pages of Combretaceae are now with images. I request you to pl. go through & point out mistakes, if any. I hope this will aid in identifications in future.
I am highly impressed with the Combretaceae page, though full representation will take time.
Combretum wallichii var. flagrocarpum is best treated as a distinct species, Combretum flagrocarpum.
Terminalia species, Kaziranga, Assam = T. citrina.
Terminalia travancorensis Wight & Arn. is a poorly known doubtful species in need of clarification.
Terminalia alata B. Heyne ex Roth (Sect. Pentaptera) – some nomenclatural problem still exists particularly this name is going without an extant type. I hope we will be able to solve the nomenclatural problems here in near future!
Terminalia arjuna (Roxb. ex DC.) Wight & Arn. will be a conserved name next year as conservation of its basionym, i.e. Pentaptera arjuna Roxb. ex DC. (1828) against Terminalia cuneata Roth (1821 – type in Berlin herbarium destroyed during World War II) has been recommended by the Nomenclature Committee on Vascular Plants in 2016. The Committee has also recommended the conservation of Pentaptera arjuna against Terminalia ellliptica Willd. (1806).
In Anogeissus, the specific distinctions are narrow and therefore we can distinguish the species by certain tendencies exhibited by them rather than clear cut differences. Hence it is risky to name a plant of Anogeissus solely on the basis of images.
