Maerua sp. (oblongifolia) ?


efi page on Capparis oblongifolia (syn: Maerua oblongifolia)


Maerua will not contain spines. It will be a species of Capparis only.


Species is Maerua oblongifolia (Forssk.) A.Rich.
Reasons:
Looking like large shrub,
Sepals 4, fused forming a tube,
Only two species of Maerua in India M. apetala & M. oblongifolia,
M. oblongofolia because petals are present, small greenish-yellow,


Yes It is Maerua oblongifolia Syn. Maerua cylindrocarpa. It is very common in E.ghats
