I was also looking for the identity of this plant. Kindly go through this thread

I am not familiar with native (wild-growing) Schefflera plants.
My posted plant is based on … ID.
In Western Ghats, peninsular India towards n-e India, we have Heptapleurum venulosum (Wight & Arn.) Seem. … synonym of Schefflera venulosa from what I found in Cooke’s flora.
This species seems to be distributed to a larger extent than other.
Other natives distributed are (referenced from eflora of China and Nepal) — for later reference:
Schefflera elliptica (Blume) Harms
shrub – (perhaps n-e India), Taiwan, Indo-China to Australia.
Schefflera pubigera (Brongn. ex Planch.) Frodin (syn. Schefflera bengalensis Gamble)
Himalayas to s-c China
Schefflera elata (Buch.-Ham.) Harms
tree – 1800-2100m Himalaya (Kumaun to Bhutan), Assam, Burma, s-w China
Schefflera impressa (C. B. Clarke) Harms
tree – 2000-3400m Himalaya (Kumaun to Bhutan), s-w China
Schefflera hypoleuca (Kurz) Harms
tree – Dense forests; ca. 1300 m. s China, India, Myanmar, Vietnam
Schefflera racemosa (Wight) Harms
tree – endemic s Western Ghats
Looking at the purple rachis of your posted (and potted) plant, it could be Schefflera venulosa.
The reasoning is weak, please consider it as a guess.

at an altitude 3000 ft
locals says its forest mango

stem smells like mango


May be any Schefflera sp


It is a species of Shefflera


Probably Schefflera stellata

This would not be a tree standing by itself. Pls check, it should be epiphytic on another tree. Your first pic probably shows this


In my opinion, it is Schefflera venulosa which occurs commonly in Deccan forests while S. stellata occurs in Nilgiris and Pulneys. I have collected this from Sidderabetta only in entire Tumkur District.


It is Schefflera stellata for me


I think this is Schefflera venulosa. We have very good population in semi-evergreen forests in Odisha.

At Nallamala forest,AP

I think it is Schefflera venulosa from Areliaceae, a monocot, but difficult to confirm without flowers and fruits,

now a days it may be in flowering or fruiting stage with white flowers or orange/ cheery read fruits

Is this Schefflera micrantha (C.B.Clarke) Gamble or Schefflera venulosa (Wight & Arn.) Harms?


I think it is Schefflera venulosa.

QUERY :: waghchawad (in Marathi); name for Schefflera elliptica: Please validate whether the name waghchawad for Schefflera elliptica is वाघचवड OR should it be वाघचवडा.
(Reference: Further Flowers of Sahyadri by Shrikant Ingalhalikar)

Distribution: Taiwan (Lan Yü), Indo-China to N. Queensland as per WCSP

Thus there is no distribution of Schefflera elliptica in India.


Many many thanks …; I have taken note of this fact long back.

The above post asked for clarification of a Marathi name, during course of compiling names for Schefflera elliptica.
The very next day I posted Schefflera venulosa after coming to know about distribution of S. elliptica.

Schefflera venulosa?


Seems to match with images of Schefflera venulosa (Wight & Arn.) Harms from the comparative images of Schefflera species


Thanks …

Location: Pilot Baba Ashram, Bhaktapur , Nepal
Altitude:  5500 ft.
Date: 26 September 2016

Looks like could be a Schefflera. There are 3 listed for Nepal in the Enumeration: S.elata, S.impressa, S. venulosa.
S.impressa is now S.rhododendrifolia but from what I can tell, it does not seem to match this.
So this leaves S.elata and S.venulosa. The latter is recorded from 300-1800m. The former from 1800-2100m.
The pressed specimen images I have seen suggest this could be S.venulosa but nor sure.
Others are likely to be more familiar with this genus than I am.
Or any other suggestions.

The only Schefflera listed in ‘Flora of Kathmandu Valley’ is S.impressa from Phulchoki @ 2000m.

Sharing some pictures for ID shot at Kurintar, Nepal on 12 April 2012 at 1000 ft.

Sorry, only these pictures.


Apiaceae ?


Could it be Apiaceae since it is a small tree about 12-15 ft.

Yes.

But I do not remember a tree being seen by me in Apiaceae. So may be some other family also.

Could not find a match as per comparative images at Apiaceae 
However branching & flowering pattern appears similar to those at Ferula jaeschkeana Vatke

This is shrub type about 4 ft plus height !

Araliaceae? Seems like something near Schfflera sp,


Do you check comparative images at family page in efi site?

Yes, I did !


To me appears close to images at Schefflera venulosa (Wight & Arn.) Harms as per comparative images at Schefflera under ‎Araliaceae as suggested by …

Looks matching ! Wikimedia Commons

Schefflera venulosa (Wight & Arn.) Harms : 9 posts by 2 authors. 5 images- 7 mb each.

Location: Sankhu, Nepal

Date: 12 September 2020
Elevation: 1780 m.
Habitat : Wild
Confusion about the flowering months!

What is the flowering period mentioned in your books ?
To me appears close to specimens from Nepal, Bhutan and India in GBIF. Pl. see
One and two

Manandhar book says Jan-Feb.


Our observations from S India are from March to May at Schefflera venulosa
So in the Himalayas, it should be after that.

OK …!
