Thorny straggler for ID 030511MK03:   Kindly help to identify this straggler which is similar to Caesalpinia bonduc but differs in having pubescent body. 

Date/Time- 10-04-2011 / 10:30 AM
Location- Place, Altitude, GPca.1800m ASL; Kothagiri, TN
Habitat- Garden/ Urban/ Wild/ Type- wild in forest fringes
Plant Habit-straggler
Height/Length- 2 m long
Leaves Type/ Shape/ Size- compound; 30 x 20 cm; each 2 x 0.4cm


This could be Caesalpinia decapetala.
C. bonduc can also be characterized by its pinnately lobed stipules, and of course by the prickly fruits.


could be “C. bonducella


चील्लार


For me this looks like Mysore Thorn : Caesalpinia decapetala; Kannada: Gajalige, Kurudu gejjuga ?

Tree For ID : Yellow Flowers : Uttarakhand : 280513 : AK-3 :  Attachments (2).  3 posts by 2 authors.
A tree with yellow flowers seen in the Bhimtal area on a mountain slope on 23/3/13.
It was not possible to go nearer to take proper close ups. 


It is not a tree, rather a scrambling shrub has reached over the branches of support tree. Looking from a distance it may appear as interpreted here.
It is Caesalpinia decapetala (Roth) Alston, (=Caesalpinia sapiaria Roxb.).
