Sir Sending here some photographs of Ceriscoides turgida clicked near Aurangabad MH on May 2021 (Fruits August 2018)
Very nice presentation.
To me id appears to be OK.
Ceriscoides turgida: 5 images.
ID Please: 7 images.
Please help me in identifying this plant.
Seen near mhatoba tekdi, Pune.
Let me add total tree/ shrub height is 3ft. bark is whitish.
Closest guess is Xantolis tomentosa
I am uncertain as per images at Xantolis tomentosa
This plant bears opposite & fasciculate leaves.
It look like Tamilnadia uliginosa
flowers of India says it grows in bogs, wet lands near rivers etc .. was your tree growing in such wet places
The tree was found in waste places.
Does not match with Tamilnadia ulginosa. Looks more like a Catunaregam species. The details of the flowers are not clear. The ID would be easy if the close ups of the flowers are posted.
I think this is Ceriscoides turgida, as per images and details herein.
Earlier this was called Randia turgida. Ceresoides turgida is the updated name.
