Found this flowers on the forest floor in Matheran on 23rd Jan,13………try to locate the source but due to huge height of trees, could not get to know whether it is from the tree or a climber but certainly not of any herbs or shrubs.


Mezoneuron cucullatum, syn Caesalpinia cucullata a large thorny climber.


Hats off … for your quick identification skills!!


Names of Plants in India :: Telugu name for Caesalpinia cucullata : 2 posts by 1 author.

Please help with the Telugu name gabbusikaya in native script, for Caesalpinia cucullata (syn. Mezoneuron cucullatum).
Ref: 
My attempt:
గబ్బుసీకాయ 
గబ్బు (gabbu) = strong, thick … A Telugu-English dictionary by Charles Philip Brown
సీకాయ (sikaya) = name for Acacia concinna … A Telugu-English dictionary by Charles Philip Brown


గబ్బుసీకాయ- you are perfectly correct; but గబ్బు (gabbu) means- bad smelling 

it is not related to sikaya, but the plant resemble A.concinna except in flower with bad smell it is named so 


Thank you very much … for this help with the name and clarification.


Wanted to know whether Mezoneuron cucullatum (syn. of Caesalpinia cucullata) is distributed in Nepal; any known local name ?


Yes is distributed in Nepal but no Nepali name so far.


Two names: baghasora and bagh-anchora, figure as names for Caesalpinia cucullata (and its popular synonyms – Mezoneuron cucullatum, Mezoneurum cucullatum) in many publications and resources on internet, for instance … Flora of Assam Volume 2 by Kanjilal UN, Kanjilal PC & A Das (1938)
Please help me with the names in native script.

Caesalpinia cucullata  Assamese name Baghasora (বাঘাচোৰা) or Bagh-anchora (বাঘ-আঁচোৰা)


Thank you very much … for this great help.


 

Please help with the Tamil name indumatticcingai in native script, for Caesalpinia cucullata (syn. Mezoneuron cucullatum).
Ref: 

I think two names are combined here, as per FRLHT database. The possible Tamil script would be: இண்டு (indu), மாட்டிச்சீங்கை (matticcingai). The name ‘Indu’ is also generally applied to Acacia caesia (or any climbing Acacias!).


Thank you very very much … for the names in native script and the clarity.

Please help me with the Kannada name matta seege in native script listed at ENVIS – FRLHT.
Please validate ಮಟ್ಟ ಸೀಗೆ
ಮಟ್ಟ (matta) = inferior … one of many meanings at Wiktionary 
ಸೀಗೆ (seege) … a name for Acacia concinnaKanaja


The meaning (s) of the word (s) is / are more or less correct:
ಮಟ್ಟ (matta) = inferior 
ಸೀಗೆ (seege)  =  a name for Acacia concinna
However, Seege means  = Soapnut.  Therefore, the  meaning of ‘matta seege’ is  ‘inferior soapnut plant’

Request you help in Identification : 7 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (2)

Discovered an old picture, couldn’t identify at that time. Could not go back and get it in flowering or fruiting stage. Any pointers to ID welcome..
Location: Meghalaya, Cherrapunjee area
Altitude-about 1200m 
Photograph taken: January 2016
Habit: shrub, about 8-9 feet tall
Leaves: compound, paripinnate, glabrous, thick. Petiole swollen, with a jointed look at the terminal leaflet end.
Stem: woody, thorny


Zanthoxylum oxyphyllum Edgew.?? 


Not Zanthoxylum in my opinion…perhaps of Fabaceae, Connaraceae or some family with swollen pulvini. 


Thank you … The stem with spines match closely. However, the leaf characters are very different. Leaves are glossy and paripinnate; Petiole is thin, glamorous, soft Compound leaves are paired, opposite..

These characters are different from Zanthoxylum

Your comments welcome…


In fact, there are more similarities with Mezoneuron cucculatum


Ok …


Yes. to me also appears close to images at Caesalpinia cucullata
