I have updated eFI (efloraofindia) page on Sapindus

Attempts have been made to incorporate most of the species available in India & nearby areas with details & keys directly or through links as far as possible.

Species discussed so far in efloraofindia are given at the bottom of the page in the form of links against Subpages. On clicking them one can see all the details.

Any comments are welcome


 

Pl. go throughSapindus ‎‎‎(Sapindaceae) page with images of species in efloraofindia.

I request you to pl. go through & point out mistakes, if any. I hope this will aid in identifications in future. If anybody can send images of other species of this genera (for incorporation in the website), if any, or can identify unidentified images, it will be really nice.

S. mukorossi is valid species not syn. of S. saponaria.


Thanks, …, How to differentiate them ?
May I request you to pl. have a look at posts under Sapindus Saponaria and point out which ones are of S.mukorossi


Thanks a lot, …, I have corrected it. All the posts appears to be of Sapindus mukorossi Gaertn.
Pl. check, if there is any error.
