eleocarpus for identification:
Another sapling for confirmation of identity
I got this sapling from a small nursery in Pune
Would very much appreciate knowing its identity

i think this is Elaeocarpus ganitrus



Need Id of seedling:

I have collected a few seeds of the attached near Dandeli, along the road side. Not expecting they would germinate, I sowed them in poly bags at home and within 5 days they germinated. Unfortunately I do not pictures of the mother tree, but have attached a few pictures of the seedlings and the seed.

Sorry if I’m asking too much from what I have, I am very new to flora and am very interested in learning more.

I have checked biotik.org and the closest I could match to the leaves of the seedlings are of Elaeocarpus munronii. I’m not sure.
