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:
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,

Taken in Bhopal. 14/8/2020. Black soil. 


Senegalia sp ??


Is it possibly Acacia concinna?


Acacia concinna: possibly. Compare with the images at: 

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.
