Antidesma sp., may be A. bunius.

Antidesma bunius.

A few days ago, had posted photographs of one of my Antidesma bunius [Ambuti, Amati, Mala] trees flowering. Sending photogrphs of another flowering and now fruiting.

Was at my farm at Shahapur last Sunday (13.7.10). My Antidesma bunius [Amati, Ambuti, Mala] trees were flowering profusely. Sending a few photographs.
The broad trunk seen in photogrpah 1 belongs to a Shivan [Gmelina arborea] tree.

I am spell bound !!
The pictures of the plant as well as the insects are simply gorgeous.
bit more information: Biotik


Please identify this tree – NS130411:
Photographed on my property last weekend. The unidentified tree is in the middle of Photographs 1 & 2 intertwined with a small Varas [Heterophragma quadriloculare] tree. Unfortunately have no further details as it was discovered only last weekend. Also don’t think it is a Vavla [Holoptelia integrifolia] tree.

Kept a watch on it. It turned out to be Antidesma bunius.


Tylophora dalzelli flowering revisited: Sorry. Missed this post last night. This could be the caterpillar of a Forester Moth [Eusemia adiatrix of Family Argasitidae]. Have encountered a similar one feeding on one of my Antidesma bunius plants. Sending a few photographs. [Apologies for the poor quality of the photographs].
