Gymnosporia rothiana M.A.Lawson

near Lion’s Point off Lonavala on 18 JUN 09  


Wow!


Yeah. Wonderful. Please check the current name.


Many thanks …
Many places Gymnosporia is treated as synonym of Maytenus; but one comment from Dr Archer in … post is worth heeding:

I confirmed this with Ms Jordaan, the authority on the genus Gymnosporia. This is definitely a good species but it should be listed as Gymnosporia puberula M.A.Lawson. It looks very different from Gymnosporia senegalensis. According to a number of studies it is now very clear there is no species of Maytenus in India or anywhere else but South America.

Maytenus wallichiana ( Spreng.ex Wight & Arn. ) D.C.S.Raju & Babu. (=Gymnosporia wallichiana) – celastraceae shrub


Maytenus rothiana


It may be a Gymnosporia species.


it is Maytenus sps.. most probably M. heyneana; also check with M. puberula.


Maytenus puberula is unarmed.
I think M. heyneana is a syn of M. rothiana (Gymnosporia rothiana)  which is common in Maharashtra.


Maytenus heyneana (Gymnosporia heyneana) seems different from M. rothiana (Gymnosporia rothiana) as per the following:
The Plant List:

According to your references it does seem to be different.
I was going by Dr Almeida’s Fl of Mah in which Maytenus heyneana (Roth) has M. rothiana listed as a synonym. The plant described is what I have always known as M. rothiana, common in Maharashtra. Then I looked it up and assumed it must be the same plant.
In BSI fl of Mah there is no Maytenus heyneana. The plant in question was photographed in Maharashtra.

Thanks, …, As per Gymnosporia also,  Maytenus heyneana may nort be found in Maharastra.

In view taking it as M. rothiana (Gymnosporia rothiana)

Maytenus rothiana, I think


The characters of flower are not very clear. Still I feel the plant is Gymnosporia sp., may be G. rothiana. But the details of flowers and fruits are to be checked and species has to be confirmed.


Yes as the experts have said the plant now looks like Maytenus (Gymnosporia) to me

Could be a Celastraceae member.


It might be Gymnosporia rothiana. The leaf in the first picture belongs to another plant.


Yes, tend to agree with …
Leaf in -1508 does seem from a different plant; leaf in -1516 looks OK for G. rothiana.
I looked a a whole bunch of my images of the species I have but nowhere could I find the seeds being so red and large at maturity [I am assuming the bright red oblong structure is a seed seen in a dehisced capsule]. In the images I have the seeds are dull orange and shriveled by the time the capsule is ripe enough to have split / ruptured and opened on it’s own [image -1218]. Capsule color match is OK.
Is the variation due to geography / region or a different subspecies or something else?
I am attaching a couple of images to show seed. Attachments (2)


The photos must be saturated and hence the colour I think, but otherwise, the reddish tinge is fine for the plant. I’ve seen the same coloured seeds (photos attached from Agumbe) in Agumbe and Udupi districts. They are more red when the fruit has just dehisched while older dehisched fruits show a duller coloured seed, as per my observation (don’t have photos unfortunately, will make sure to click next time).

ID request-PKA180612-PKA2: Seen this Climbing shrub en-route Peb fort. Requesting ID for this.
Date/Time: 17-06-2012 / 03:20PM
Location: En route Peb fort, Matheran Region, Maharashtra
Habitat: Wild
Plant Habit: Climbing Shrub?
Flowers were small in size, somewhat greenish in colour, seen in cluster.


… strong feeling: Bridelia hamiltoniana … synonym of Bridelia montana.
Wonderful to find it blooming profusely.


It was raining heavily, rather it was pouring, almost non stop. I was bit reluctant to take out my camera but could not resist the temptation of photographing this plant. Could manage to take few snaps.
I had seen this plant in flowering for the first time.


i guess some Maytenus species, family Celastraceae..


this is Maytenus senegalensis of Celastraceae.


I think this is more likely to be Maytenus rothiana because it is flowering now. M. senegalensis typically flowers in oct – nov.
Also we see the dark green leaves, paler beneath of M. rothiana.
In my experience M. rothiana is common in Matheran area, and not M. senegalensis.


Agree with … observations.


Some of my photographs of the same.

I saw a plant yesterday (14.2.21), which reminded me similar plant seen on Kokankada near Harishchandra gad in November 2017.
I think this plant is Maytenus rothiana??

Yes it is
