This could be Bridelia scandens.


Now this could be Cleistanthus collinus (Roxb.) Benth. ex Hook.f.
|The fruits are very significant. 

I agree with … on Cleistanthus collinus and wish to warn that the fruits can be mistaken for Emblica (medicinal Aawala) fruits and can prove to be fatally poisonous if eaten.

Found in village side on foothills of Javadhu hills of Thiruvannamalai District, Tamil Nadu.
Shrub.
The local people told its leaves and bark are toxic.
In Tamil: ஓட or ஓத  மரம்.

I think Cleistanthus collinus.

Tree for Id_ MP: 5 images.

Sharing pictures of a tree for identification.
This tree was found standing near a lake in the wild at the MP-Chhattisgarh border.
Height–Appx 35 feet
Kindly help in identification.

Bridelia retusa (L.) Spreng. ??


… tree did not match with the Bridelia species.
And localities told us that fruits are not edible.

OK !


Diospyros melanoxylon locally known as Tendu is common in that region and the fruits are edible too. Check out images of the same and let us know.


I know Diospyros melanoxylon well. It was not that tree.
Fruits were smaller and not edible.

Cleistanthus collinus (Roxb.) Benth. ex Hook.f. [Phyllanthaceae].


It’s Cleistanthus collinus only, I agree with …
