Dalbergia sp


Rourea minor
Please check this


Connarus wightii


Thanks, …

After further pursuing the details, I think it appears close to Rourea minor as suggested by … as per Flora of Peninsular India.
Looks different from Connarus wightii as per Flora of Peninsular India and POWO.
If my analysis is correct then images of … at IBP and Wikimedia Commons have to be shifted to Rourea minor.
Awaiting your feedback pl.


This is Rourea santaloides


Thanks, …,
What about images of … at IBP and Wikimedia Commons

They all seem to be Rourea santaloides
