Croton species/ hybrid;

at MIDC resort, Matheran– Aug’09?; Is it Croton bonplandianus – indiantreepix | Google Groups


Perhaps, a kind of Elaeocarpus.

Euphorbiaceae, its very likely to be some species of Croton

Yes I agree with … that this could be a species of Croton.

After googling its looks like Croton megalocarpus

but the fruit is striped black and white in the one I saw.

Doesent look like Croton megalocarpus

It is indeed looking like a Croton but from where it was collected. Please let me know the collection details

It was in Lalbag, Banglore.

There are about 800 species of Croton worldwide and the Asian species are about 150. The present photos from Lalbagh, Bengaluru do not represent a species occurring in erstwhile British India. It is not at all an Indian species. Hence, you have to contact … of Leiden Herbarium for its identity. His email id is available in the website of Leiden Herbarium or Flora Malesiana Euphorbiaceae Newsletter search. Lalbagh Bengaluru is a treasure house of plants. I wish I would have visited the garden for once.
