efloraindia: Fabaceae-C​aesalpinio​ideae (Caesalpin​iaceae) week:  Sharing the images of Senna siamea from Coimbatore.


Not Senna siamea for sure. The fruits are quite different and even the habit photo, foliage etc. of the plant looks quite different. Check for other species of Senna.


My key uploaded on the website leads me to Senna spectabilis, the only species without glands (I can’t detect any) and cylindrical pods.

Does it commonly flower during this time in AP? What is the date when this picture was taken? This tree has finished its flowering long time back in Bangalore (typically after the rain till around Nov)


It is from my old collection taken during April 2010, Thirumala hill, forest area near Aakasganga, it is a cultivated tree only.

size of the leaves. any hairs?


No mam leaves are not hairy.  5-6cm long and 2-3 cm wide


From the leaves arrangement and shape it is looking like S. spectabilis but S. spectabilis leaves are more glossy as compared to this. i  have to wait for flowering n fruiting 


What is the genus? 


Senna as suggested by …


To me looks different. 


On further checking, I feel you may be right as per images at Senna spectabilis  


Yes sir. It’s looking like S.spectabilis

¿ Cassia ?  

Dear friends,
This small tree is most probably planted; not sure whether exotic or native. I assume it is Cassia, but not able to get to species. The cylindrical pods are slightly over a foot long. 


Cassia spectabilis ??


Yes, …, all possibility of Cassia spectabilis (syn. of Senna spectabilis).
Thank you very much for the ID.


Pointed tip of leaflets suggested …checked for pods and they too match with Senna spectabilis.  

Indeed .. I am convinced with your ID. Thank you very much. I have already updated my notes yesterday.
