Euonymus :

I have updated eFI (efloraofindia) page on Euonymus

Attempts have been made to incorporate most of the species available in India & nearby areas with details & keys directly or through links as far as possible. It’s quite possible that there may be some discrepancy in the accepted names & synonyms taken from other databases/ books.

Species discussed so far in efloraofindia are given at the bottom of the page in the form of links against Subpages. On clicking them one can see all the details.

Any comments are welcome


I have added names of Euonymus species in India and threat staus of species, if any, based on BSI documents.
