Capparis divaricata, I think.
Are these flowers of Capparis divaricata? The leaf morphology is similar to that of C.divaricata.
Thank you very much … sir; but I imagine the leaves are more linear in C.divaricata. The flowers were taken the previous day (13 Apr 2012) but in a different location of 300 metres away. Time of photography: 02:45 PM
I agree with … All the images belong to Capparis divaricata. Since it is highly variable species and the leaf shape varies from linear, lanceolate, elliptic-lanceolate (for more details kindly refer Jacob’s revision on Capparis )

Location-Mayureshwar Sanctuary, Supa, (District. Pune)

It is Capparis species, probably C. divaricata (?).
Yes this is Capparis divaricata.
I have not seen the fruits of this but the leaves and overall habitat indicates it to be Capparis divaricata as suggested earlier.

Capparis divaricata with a red gynophore : Attachments (1). 6 posts by 5 authors.
I wish to share Capparis divaricata Lam. with an unusual red gynophore.
Very beautiful … gynophore as well as size of pistil is unique..
Nice picture, …!
I think the change in color indicates that the flower is pollinated.
In case of Capparis zeylanica the white/creamy flowers turn (entirely) to pink or purple, as we commonly see.
Thank you for the comments,
Thanks … for your opinion.
I rechecked my pictures of the same species and found that some are with red and some with yellow gynophore. Interesting findings!

Please identify this Capparis sp details of which are as follows:
Date : 16.06.13
Location :Keelakuyilkudi, Madurai
Altitude :less than 500 ft
Habit :small tree
Height :10 ft
Fruits :not seen
I have revisited the tree. Yet to find the fruits.
Very good find. Never seen such Capparis. Eager to know the ID.
Initially I thought it to be Maerua as per the Key saying: Climbing or straggling shrubs:
Next line says
Here Sepals appear to be in one whorl but stamens are more than 20 so likely to be Capparis only.
Let us wait for further comments.
Capparis species so far in efi with keys
It looks like Capparis grandis L.f. to me
Thanks for the suggestion that it could be Capparis grandis.
Thanks for the id.
