–   for me It looks more like Tamilnadia uliginosa (Retz.) Tirveng rather than Catunaregam spinosa (Thunb.) Tirveng


Tamilnadia uliginosa only

Tamilnadia uliginosa: Today at Alibag
Tamilnadia uliginosa

… Randia uliginosa: Are there 2 identities:
1) Randia uliginosa (Retz.) Poir.
2) Randia uliginosa DC.


I don’t think Randia uliginosa DC. was ever published

Randia uliginosa (Retz.) Poir. is a combination based on Gardenia uliginosa Retz. . Both these (as also Posoqueria uliginosa (Retz.) Roxb., Solena uliginosa (Retz.) D.Dietr., Xeromphis uliginosa (Retz.) Maheshw., Catunaregam uliginosa (Retz.) Sivar.) are now treated as synonyms of accepted name Tamilnadia uliginosa (Retz.) Tirveng. & Sastre, Mauritius Inst. Bull. 8(4): 85 1979.

Tamilnadia uliginosa – an observation:  Thought this might be interesting.
Had recently posted photographs of Tamilnadia uliginosa flowering at this link
Have over the last few weekends on visits to my property at Shahapur, noticed that while Catunaregam spinosa [Ghela] & Meyna laxiflora [Aaliv] were fruiting freely, Tamilnadia uliginosa [Pandhari] showed no such inclination.
A plausible explanation :
Ants feed on a variety of substances such as sugar matter, nectar, seeds, other ants & invertebrates.
Ants are ineffecient pollinators and are likely to interfere with pollen germination and pollen tube growth [because their antibiotic secretions Myrmicacins are known to suppress bacterial & fungal growth in their nests]. To offset this several plants provide ants with alternate nectar sources called ‘extrafloral nectaries’.

As seen in these photographs, the Asiatic species of Weaver Ants [Oecophylla smaragdina] have possibly prevented pollination of the flowers of Pandhari by incorporating them within their nests.

Oh! I remember it as Catunarega uliginosa, as in most of the taxonomic literature in India. It is also common tree here in foot hills and adjacent plains of the Himalaya in Uttarakhand.

i think that was a typo error. That must be Randia uliginosa (Synonym of Tamilnadia uliginosa).


As per The Plantlist 2010, this species is now known as Tamilnadia uliginosa (Retz.) Tirveng & Sastre, while Randia uliginosa (Retz.) Poir. and Catunaregam uliginosa (Retz.) Sivar. are synonym while Gardenia uliginosa Retz. is basionym. Accordingly, this genus Tamilnadia has only one species (monotypic).
