I have updated efi page on Diospyros
Attempts have been made to incorporate most of the species available in India & nearby areas with details & keys directly or through links. It’s quite possible that there may be some discrepancy in the accepted names & synonyms taken from other links etc.
Efloraofindia species’ page links are at the bottom of the page.
Any comments are welcome.
