Jasmine growing wild inside the Sanjay Gandhi National Park in Mumbai on 15th April, 18.
Experts kindly validate.



Identify this white flower: 2 images.
Here I attached the picture of white flowers (wild) taken from Ponmudi Hills (1200m) last sunday.
Please identify the flower

most probably Jasminum malabaricum

i think this is Jasminum nitidum or Jasminum dichotomum

This is Jasminum cordifolium Wall.ex G. Don, a rare species seen on the road side of Ponmudi hills. Jasminum malabaricus is a huge liana more or less similar to this species but readily be distinguished by its pubescent calyx.

I think closer to images at Jasminum malabaricum Wight rather than those at Jasminum cordifolium Wall. & G.Don

on the 15th of April,10 in a home garden at Nasik;

Please help me to identify this twiner found in evergreen forests. Is this J.malabaricum?
The leaves are up to 15cm long
Place: Valparai, TN
Habitat: evergreen forest edge
Date: 08 July 2012
Alt.: 950 m asl

The plant is not jasminum malabaricum. The plant shows some similarities with Jasminum ritchiei Clarke in Hook.f.. But length of leaves and nature of calyx makes me some confusions. As per my 7 years phenological data on lianas of Western Ghats, Jasminum ritchiei Clarke in Hook.f. shows peak flowering in June-July (rainy season).
You please give more information about the plant for the confirmation of ID

Yes I too think that this is Jasminum ritchiei C.B.Clarke.
This species shows lots of variation even within a population and depending upon the light availability etc.

Thanks, …
But looks different from images at Jasminum ritchiei C.B.Clarke as identified by …
Also looks different from specimen and illustration at http://florakarnataka.ces.iisc.ac.in/hjcb2/herbsheet.php?id=2950&cat=1 (though image is different).

it is coming close to Jasminum coarctatum Roxb.(= Jasminum rottlerianum Wall. ex DC.)

Does not matches with images at Jasminum coarctatum Roxb.

I think the Jasminum in this post is J. malabaricum and not ritchiei

Thanks, …, You may be right.
Leaves appear quite variable in this species as per Jasminum malabaricum


Images at Dinesh Valke’s Flickr Post on Jasminum nervosum looks close to images at Jasminum malabaricum Wight
I request … to pl. have a look.

Location – Lonavala (Maharashtra)
Date – June 2018

Check with Jasminum

I guess ID is correct!

Could be Jasminum angustifolium

Jasminum malabaricum, I think

Thanks …. Can it be J.malbaricum ? What is the difference between these two species? I had never seen fruiting of any Jasminum genus, so I was surprised. Does this fruiting occur in the wild and not in cultivated variety ?
