First 3 photos belong to one and same tree
location- Eaglenest wls. taken on 19 th May 2009.
location and date as above

The first one appears to be some sort of Schefflera species (with inflorescences much like S. pueckleri), but I don’t recognize it specifically.

It does not look like Schefflera sp. at all.

The First three photos are Brassiopsis sheweliensis W.W.Sm. I reported this as new record for India in one of my Molecular Taxonomy paper. I shall send you the reprint on monday. Sending the photos right now.
