Thanks for the family update too. I didnt know that Leeaceae was transfered back to Vitaceae.


I think Leea aspera is

correct.


Yes Look like Leea aspera


Leea aspera Edgew. (syn. of Leea asiatica (L.) Ridsdale ) as per link: http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/tro-34000736 &
Leea aspera Wall. ex G. Don (Syn. of Leea macrophylla Roxb. ex Hornem. as per link:
http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/tro-34002021
Which is the correct name of this Leea aspera from above for the posted plant ?


Leea macrophylla Roxb. ex Hornem (syn: Leea aspera Wall. ex G. Don) is a plant with simple leaves
This one is Leea aspera of FBI partly based on Leea aspera Edgew, 1841 (not Leea aspera of Wall.) which was given the name Leea edgeworthii by Santapau in 1953. has pinnate leaves, and now correctly known as Leea asiatica (L.) Ridsdale

Plant for ID : Mumbai : 011111 : AK-3:   A potted plant at Maharashtra Nature Park, could have been found growing wild in the original place.

I was able to see the buds on 17th August and fruits on 22nd Sept,11 during my visits to the park.
Missed out on the flowers.
Was told by the Dy Director that he had specially planted it as it attracts butterflies.
May be …,  … can help. Rubus?


Leea sp.


Yes, This should be Leea sp., may be L. aspera


On checking at FOI, It looks similar to Leea asiatica, common name Banchalita.
Experts kindly confirm please.


I think it is Leea asiatica (L.) Ridsdale (Syn: Leea aspera Edgew.). But Leea aspera Wall. ex G. Don (Syn: Leea macrophylla Roxb. ex Hornem.) is a different plant and has leaves that are 1-3 pinnate.

Plz id this shrub: pa4 – 25oct2012: Plz id this shrub from Yeoor region. I had seen a similar plant called Leea in some post recently, is this also the same?


I am confused since … has identified it as Leea indica and … has identified it as Leea asiatica. Would apreciate the features that differentiate bet. the two species.


Leea indica: Leaves 2- to 3-pinnate; lower surface glabrous, lateral veins 6-11 pairs; marginal teeth sharp; berry 8-10 mm

Leea asiatica: Leaves pinnate or 3-foliate; lower surface pubecent beneath especially along veins; lateral veins 11-15 pairs; marginal teeth rounded or obtuse; berry 5-7 mm


Thank you … for the detail response to my question. I always make it a point to read your emails and learn a lot. If I understand correctly, the plant in my post is Leea indica, plz correct me if I am wrong. I am ataching a full size image of the leaves in case it helps for better viewing.


This is Leea asiatica. Please check the archives of this group for my photographs of this.

The blackish fruits were spotted in the Aarey forest in November 2016. It was a bush, may be 3-4 feet in height, I forgot to take the pic of the whole plant.
Are they Leea indica?
