Delbergia horrida: Is it Delbergia horrida?
Marathi name: Petungal
Photographed at Phansad WLS,Maharashtra
I think we visited Phansad a week or two earlier to your visit.
We had seen this species but it was not flowering.
I am not an authority to confirm your ID since I have yet to observe this species but most probably you are right. Last year when I had come across a Dalbergia lanceolaria (Dhondus) species it was thought to be D.horrida. From that time I wanted to observe this.
Dalbergia horrida, common in Maharashtra and Goa.
Dalbergia lanceolaria is a tree, whereas D. horrida is a huge climber or scandy bush .. this is D. horrida.
I have the photograph of D. lanceolaria. I will search out and post it. The leaves are quite different from D.horrida.
Yes, D.horrida of Leguminosae family; a large armed climber/liana in moist deciduous and semi evergreen forests.

Seen this tree at Dhavlya Ghat (en-route Mahabaleshwar).

Kindly help me with the ID..
are you sure it is a tree?
Yes, It’s a tree, i too felt that it could be some Dalbergia sp. … unable to place it…
In the last photo you can see the typical circinate branches typical of Dalbergia sympathetica (Dalbergia horrida). When the plant stands alone without a support it assumes the habit of a shrub with long branches in all directions. Pods are not quite clear enough in the picture. I have seen this plant without the long spines so it is very deceptive.
Yes, the pods R not very clear as it was just the beginning of fruiting stage. I had seen at-least 5 to 6 plants at one particular stretch and if i remember correctly, all were looking like tree only. May be if i happen to visit this region in near future i will get few more snaps..

Dalbergia ¿ horrida ?
All of these armed lianes seem Dalbergia horrida to me. The average diameter of these lianas are about 4 – 6 inches.
Please validate. If there are many species bearing similar habit and design of spines, please help me their names.

But I think it is not matching.
Is the climber prickly ? Then compare with this at : http://gardentia.net/2014/03/28/prickly-dalbergia/
