Or is it Rhus mysorensis?


It looks like  two different plants in this picture. One occupying the major portion with a bunch of  fruits. Another is on the right side (down) corner.


I also think it’s Rhus mysorensis

later on i was able to sight Commifera wightti in wild, attaching images.


I agree with the ID by … Any how, you may also check for Rhus trilobata to rule out it is not R.trilobata..
