Plz id this tree: pa89 – 14jan2013:
Plz id this tree from Yeoor region. I think it is Bauhinia but don’t know the species. It is fruiting now and the pods are curled up and twisted. Sorry the photos are not very clear, the pods are high up on the tree and i could not go close b’coz of dense area.


This is the female tree of Bauhinia foveolata, an uncommon Bauhinia in Mumbai’s National Park.

Thank you … But why not Bauhinia foveolata?


Yes, maybe Piliostigma foveolatum (Dalzell) Thoth. !


So how to confirm if it is Bauhinia foveolata or vahlii ?


As it appears to be a liana, I think it is Phanera vahlii (Wight & Arn.) Benth., as per images and details herein.
Piliostigma foveolatum (Dalzell)Thoth. (syn: Bauhinia foveolata) is a tree.


Every chance it is P foveolatum. The plants when young has a climbing habit.

To confirm the identification one can look for innumerable pits with inflated trichomes on the lower surface of the leaves.
