I found this very interesting phenomenon at Kasara in the beginning of July 2016. Got so engrossed in the activity of these little insects that I forgot to click the right pictures needed to ID the tree.

Thanks, … Pl. check with comparative images at Acacia


I think it matches with images of Senegalia pennata (L.) Maslin as per comparative images at Acacia
Regarding activities of these insects, … may pl. clarify.

Acacia hohenackeri Craib SN Sep 51 : 1 post by 1 author. Attachments (2).
Acacia hohenackeri Craib, wild scandant shrub from Gudalur area of Nilgiri, Tamilnadu

Does not matches with the specimen at the following:
nhm
To me it appears close to images at Senegalia pennata (L.) Maslin 

Senegalia hohenackeri is so far known only from the type collection, Hohenacker 1602 (CAL!, BM: image!, K: image!) collected from the Nilgiris in Tamil Nadu. The material apparently differs from S. pennata in the petiolulate (petiolule ca 0.5 mm long) leaflets and their reticulate tertiary venation. There are a number of closely related species in this group such as S. andamanica and S. pruinescens differing from each another in small characters.. While transferring the Indian species of the erstwhile Acacia to Seneglia and Vachellia, the respective authors did not point out the characteristic/distinctive features of the species although a number of species considered to be synonyms by Chakrabarty & Gangopadhyay (1996) were elevated to species rank.  Thus, there is need for further critical evaluation.
The leaflets in the present images are appearing to be sessile and therefore I would suggest the name Senegalia pennata for them.

It does not look like this is in the list.
Is it Acacia pennata?

Pl. check images and details at Senegalia pennata (L.) Maslin

Thank you, … Looks like Senegalia pennata.

Please identify

Acacia torta,

seems to be: yes. from the one pic we have


I think closer to Senegalia pennata (L.) Maslin rather than Senegalia torta (Roxb.) Maslin, Seigler & Ebinger as per comparative images at Senegalia


Are the leaves edible?


I am putting this question because the leaves of S.pennata are edible.


How to differentiate Acacia pennata from Acacia torta ?


Leaflets 18-35 pairs………………..A. torta
Leaflets 35-60 pairs………………..A. pennata..
as per these our plant identified as a A. pennata, thanks …, this was cleared because of your query,

Senegalia sp ??


Is it possibly Acacia concinna?


Acacia concinna: possibly. Compare with the images at: efi thread


This appears to be Senegalia pennata (L.) Maslin as per comparative images at Senegalia

Most likely it’s A. concina because the photos I’ve sent are of a liana, not of a shrub or small tree.


Climbers, scandent shrubs, or small trees and leaflets 15-25 pairs in Acacia concinna (Willdenow) Candolle and climbers and leaflets 30-54 pairs in Acacia pennata (Linnaeus) Willdenow
So it is Acacia pennata (Linnaeus) Willdenow only, which is syn. of Senegalia pennata (L.) Maslin 

Ok … Will wait for the fruit to see if it is shikakai or not.


Yes… We need to wait.

Mimosaceae Shrub for identification MK NOV-002 : 7 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (7). Please help me to identify this Acacia sp. Inflorescence: c.2cm across. Habit: Thorny Shrub (Liane too). Habitat: Dense scrub / roadside. Location: Coimbatore Dist., TN (seen in many such habitats). Date: 01 Nov 2014. Alt.: 650 M ASL


the leaflets are minute (like that of Albizia amara)


Acaciaspecies in eFIoraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available)


This is most probably Albizia amara (Krishna Siris). There are variants. Therefore, please also check for the subspecies.


I think it is Acacia caesia (L.) Willd.(=Acacia intsia Willd. var. caesia (L.) Baker )


It cannot be Acacia caesia. The arrangement of leaves flowering type etc. are quite different. Please see the links http://indiabiodiversity.org/species/show/263281


To me it looks like Acacia torta.


Compare with Acacia torta and A. pennata.


This appears close to images at Senegalia pennata

Senegalia pennata


Yes, it is dear …, thank you very much for ID my plant. Here one more variation, big hard base stem remains rigid thorns silver white in colour (blooming soon, but very high so I am not sure capturing) we used it’s bark for hair shampoo. Note that using bark of S. pennata as shampoo get reverse reaction, it’s sap from bark when crushing in water is poisonous and used as folklore here to catching fish from small streams.

Pl. find the attached file contain photo for id. request.
Date: 03.01.2012
Location: NBNP, Anaikatti, Coimbatore
Habitat: Wild
Habit: Woody climber.
The tender leaves a edible. (used by local tribal).

Acacia sp., may be A. torta.


I think it may be Senegalia pennata (L.) Maslin


 


/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/DSC02488.JPG

PLEASE ID:  I AM CONFUSE ABOUT IT


Look like Acacia species (may be Acacia suma)


… if found planted, one of the possibility is Leucaena leucocephala …


Looks somewhat different from images at Leucaena leucocephala

Also could not find a match as per comparative images at Acacia
We may tentatively keep it as Leucaena leucocephala ?

I too am not confident about Leucaena leucocephala.
The cluster of pods made me think so.
Otherwise the branches seem to bear prickles – not very clear.
Hopefully, someone will comment.

There is no way to be a  Leucaena leucocephala.,
It’s Acacia only, Acacia pennata,

Yes, Senegalia pennata
