In my childhood I used to eat the fruits of this plant. I have seen butterflies visiting the flowers of this plant and birds eating fruits of this plant;

Even until 1980s the young stems were used as toothbrush cum toothpaste by majority of the villagers (NEEM also served the same purpose). Nectar plant for many more butterflies like this one, common five ring;

Plant for id : 6 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (1)
Please identify this Rutaceae plant photographed in Chintamani Kar Bird Sanctuary, April – 15
Larval Host plant for Common Mormon butterfly.

It is most likely Glycosmis pentaphylla (Retz.) DC.
But I would request to check the only other possibility (based on ‘Bengal Plants’ distribution) – Clausena heptaphylla (Roxb.) Wight & Arn. I have never seen this species. In fact I wouldn’t think of it if it was not in CKBS, I had been there only once and that was too for birds only! I didn’t notice vegetation there carefully! CKBS may host unknown/unusual species not seen in rural South Bengal.

Glycosmis pentaphylla is a very common herb to sub-shrub, may attain height of an adult man, and common mormon butterflies very much like this species, as does quaker.


I endorse … suggestion.


The smell was not so strong, in fact saw several saplings nearby with Quaker butterfly females laying eggs on it. I think I have one more image of same sp. will upload soon, all plants were less than 2 fts in height.


The biggest leaf was 15cms appx in length.


Shrub/ tree (not sure) for ID, photographed from Kathgodam, Uttarakhand.
April 13, 2012

Finally identified as Glycosmis pentaphylla. Upper younger leaves appear compound.


Possibly, it is a species of Glycosmis. May be Glycosmis
pentaphylla
…… (A shrub).


The mature fruits exactly match with G.pentaphylla which is common in that are. It was the leaves which are confusing as G.pentaphylla have pinnately compound leaves.

The isolated leaf pics present that they are opposite, which made me think again, otherwise I would have said Atlantia sp.

On flowering twigs the leaves seem to be alternate, my guess is Atlantia… just a guess, not seen this plant..


I’ll check for fruits and will report back next week.

Can it be Atlantia macrophylla???

As far as i can remember this Glycosmis pentaphylla, dated 08-May-2012, was my first entry to the Rutaceae week. Some days later while i was browsing the efI site Dinesh Ji’s post (https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!topic/indiantreepix/ly4IU-UVJrc) came to my notice.
I noticed the comment of … in … post, stating G. pentaphylla & G. mauritiana are two different species. I thought both were same species and they were synonyms. I searched the net and the following websites supported me :-
Moreover, GLycosmis page of Flora of China doesn’t refer any G. mauritiana species – http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=2&taxon_id=113754.
On the other hand, according to KEW, G. pentaphylla (http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/kew-2827634) and G. mauritiana (http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/kew-2827610) are different species. This support … comment on … post.
So, I wanted the latest report from India, or at least from Asia, and found that the full ‘pdf’ file available in the http://www.scirp.org/journal/PaperInformation.aspx?paperID=8738 site states both G. pentaphylla & G. mauritiana are synonyms! And that report is published in 2011. Attaching the full ‘pdf’ file for your perusal.
So many controversies in the collected data!

Which software should I download to get Bengali keyboard? as well as Hindi.


…, there is no need for downloading any software.

There are many webpages which help in typing scripts with characters other than Roman.
Yesterday, I used Lexilogos webpage for typing Bangla script.

This page has choice of languages at the top- it may not have all the languages of India/ World.

Which of these मेणकी or मेनकी sounds Marathi ?

This name is used in Goa too. (Ref: Shodhganga).

Assamese name of Glycosmis pentaphylla listed in The Useful Plants of India published by NISCAIR is hengena-poka; please help in providing it in native script.

Will be glad if someone helps by validating the spellings typed in Gurmuhki and Devanagari scripts.
ban nimbu … ਬਣ ਨਿੰਬੂ … बन निम्बू … OK

potali …ਪੋਟਲੀ … पोटली

Not sure how the latter two names have got applied to the plant.


.


Glycosmis pentaphylla is distributed in Gujarat; any known local name ? I could not find any in the regular resources that I check.
Can we go with naming it as વન લીંબુ van limbu, just as we have it as বন জামির ban jamir in Bengali, बन निम्बू ban nimbu in Hindi … Reference: ENVIS-FRLHT.

Sorry I couldn’t write earlier. I am not acquainted with this plant and don’t know of any Gujarati names. Hope some other members would be able to comment.
