Alangium salvifolium (Linn.f.) Wang. OR (fish smelling fruit ID 8-July-12 SK3) :  9 images. 1 post by 1 author.

This can be regarded as continuation of my earlier post, “fish smelling fruit ID 8-July-12 SK3”, at efi thread.
I found these flowers on another tree, of same species, in the same village.
Though it is known as AANSH-PHAL locally, the Bengali names i found in old lit. are – বাঘ আঁকড়া / আকর কাঁটা / আঁকড়া (BAAGH-AANKRA / AAKAR / AANKRA).
Some confusion remains though –
  • A. decapetalum Lam. in Hortus Suburbanus Calcuttensis
  • A. hexapetalum Willd. in Flora Indica and Hortus…. and Flora of British India
  • A. lamarckii Thw. in Flora of British India and Bengal Plants

A group thread, on sub-species, can be found at efi thread.

This is another marriage between two plant species!

Nice photographs, but again this is not a ‘marriage’. Please check these links :


Thank you once again …

I had a wrong notion, that only Ficus rumphii was known as ‘strangler fig’! Now, i see that a number of fig trees are called by the same namehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strangler_fig.

Kindly identify this tree with white stringy fragrant flowers, photographed in the Javadi Hills, Tiruvannamalai district, Tamil Nadu and also (the last 3 pictures) in the Horsely Hills area, Chittoor District, Andhra Pradesh, in March 2017.
In this season, the tree is evidently flowering after having shed all or most of its leaves.
Height of trees about 5-8 metres, so a small-medium tree, at least the specimens i saw.

This must be Alangium sp. Please check local flora for ID to species.


Seems to be Alangium salvifolium


yes alangium salvifolium. fruits are red in colour edible in nature

I know it’s difficult with leaves to find the ID. Just sharing. No issues if we could not able to find it.

It looks Alangium sp. to me.

Tamal tree is supposed to be one of the Garcenia species. But the tree doesnot look like it. The leaves in the photographs sent by … have similarity to young leaves of Alangium  salvifolium

Pl. check with images at Alangium salviifolium as per id by …
To me also appear close.

I am not capable. Sorry. In my new visit I will try to check for any flowers and fruits

Alangium salvifolium in Chennai: This tree has dropped nearly all its leaves at the crown which is full of buds and flowers. There are leaves and flowers on the lower branches. It is a well-grown tree standing without hindrance – a beautiful sight in Chennai.

Request Tree ID 0007: Jogpalya Park, Bangalore
I have seen the flower yet.


The fruit shape colora and leaves remind me of POMEGRANATE …
It is  Punica granatumPunica granatum tree may indeed have spines on branches…
Since its in a park, May be you can keep an  eye on it and photograph the flowers…


Its not pomegranate, its something else
The fruit is like a big berry


It is Alangium salvifolium from family Cornaceae.


The only alangium berry I have seen had many sided angulated surface……
if its really this … then the flowers next season will solve the mystery, because Punica flowers are distinctive.


Yes it is Alangium salvifolium (L.f.) Wang
Commonly known as Ankol in Maharashtra
Highly medicinal plant..
One more species in Maharashtra, but that is a huge climber or Liana..
Family Alangiaceae (Monogeneric family)

Alangium salviifolium Dr Phadke.Pune: Alangium salviifolium
Family : Cornaceae; also placed in Family : Alangiaceae.
I observed few trees flowering during last 15 days on Vetal Tekdi.
Had failed to observe before during last 7 years.
Trees 5-7 meters; Thorny. Very few leaves at the time of flowering. No fruits observed by me so far (Will keep a watch)
A small flowered twig with a bud kept in vase. Bloomed next evening to midnight.
Mild fragrance (Truly not very pleasant). Fresh flowers white. Old flowers turn brownish.
My specimen had 7 petals 2cm approx 28 filaments with long anthers. Single style with a 4 partite globose stigma rising above the stamens.


Please share the leaf picture, if you have one.


This is what the leaves look like: link

 


I understood the reason for your query.
To differentiate between the subspecies.. As per the BSI Key
1. Drupes +/- 1cm long. Leaf apex acute … ssp.salvifolium
1. Drupes +/- 2cm long. Leaf apex acuminate … ssp.hexapetalum.
The tree was more or less leafless. Attaching a picture with new foliage. The apex of the leaves doesn’t appear to be acuminate so it has to be ssp. salvifolium.
I am not sure about the spelling of the species name too. it has been spelled with a single ‘l’ or double ‘ll’ at different entries.


Thank you … for understanding my query correctly. Even if I am confident enough with the id I wanted everybody to see the leaves to have a perfect idea about the plant. Otherwise whenever we see Alangium, everything would become Alangium salvifolium.
Hope such clarifications always helps in keeping a good understanding on similar looking species or sub species.
I forgot to mention that the pictures were superb!


These trees are in plenty on the bunds of Vedantangal Bird Sanctuary near Chennai. A few trees are also seen in Guindy National Park ( Childrens park ) Chennai.

In flowersofindia the height of this tree is mentioned as 3-10 m. At the same place it is written that it is a tall tree. As the height mentioned in the writeup it can be a dwarf to small tree.


On the bund at the Vedanthangal Bird Sanctuary near Chennai, the trees are tall, over 30 feet at least. About a month ago, they were full of flowers and fruit. Villagers told us that the fruit , which were green then, were edible when purple and ripe.

Kolha for ID:

this is a small trree height about 15-20 feet.
Found in abundance in open land. I have few trees on my land too.
In flowering season it drops its leaves.
Locally called Kolha. Couldn’t find any reference with this name.

Forwarding video link for comparison.

Could this be Alangium salvifolium.


It seems. It is also known as Ankol, Akot or Kolha. It is added in Traditional Formulations for pest management in medicinal rice as important ingredient. I am talking about Vedic Farming.


Alangium salviifolium indeed.
Alangiaceae Now Cornaceae as per The plant List.

Most probably this is Alangium salviifolium subsp. salviifolium (Earlier known as Alangium lamarkii) of Cornaceae family.


i doubt it as a member of cornaceae family. otherwise it is seems A.salviifolium to me too.


Earlier the genus Alangium was in Alangiaceae family. Now, according to the plant list this comes under Cornaceae family.

fish smelling fruit ID 8-July-12 SK3:

I thought it is a Sapindaceae member, something like Longan fruits. But a closer look at the apex of the fruits suggests it maybe a member of Jamun family, Myrtaceae. I ate this sweet juicy fruit that smells strongly of raw fish. The owner told me that it is ANSPHAL in Bengali.
Species : UNKNOWN
Habit & Habitat : small tree, home-yard garden
Date : 9/5/12, 10 A.M.
Place : Gobra (Hooghly)

Its Alangium salvifolium (Linn.f.) Wang. , of Alangiaceae family . very important plant in medicine…..fruits are edible in summer season .. commonly known as Ankul in Maharashtra …..fruits taste sweet with bitterness due to richness in alkaloid…..its population is restricted to some areas only wherever it is available…

sapling for identification:  This sapling from Bandhavgarh, Madhya Pradesh belongs to a tree called “kolha” in the local language.
It flowers in March- ? white flowers. It grows into a medium sized tree and is used as a hedge and for firewood. Can anyone identify what is the botanical name ?
PS: This sapling was a gift from … from his home (skay’s camp) garden where we stayed for 5 days. He has three well grown medium sized trees of ‘Kolha’ bordering a part of his garden.


I hope plants survived if not I will bring some more.
KolhaAlangium salviifolium .
This was ID on eflora through it’s flowers.

Great to know its ID finally. Yes one of them is still surviving.

Saw this tree on the mountain housing the caves in Badami, KA in October 2019.
There was a solitary flower on the tree, probably the flowering period was over, however, no fruits could be seen.

You are right. Plenty in Chennai Vedanthangal Bird Sanctuary and Kokkare Bellur Birds sanctuary (Near Maddur, Karnataka )
