This is flowers and fruit of Terminalia citrina (Gaertn) Roxb. of Combretaceae.
Considered as sacred fruit in some region.

… was looking for a picture of this plant.

Wow, thanks … for posting this. Yes, as … said i was hunting for pictures of Terminalia, espl from northeast region.

I want to use these pictures in a poster with your permission. If it is ok for you, please send the higher resolution pictures to my id.
I’ll post my collections from Moreh Forest Guest House in Manipur which i thought as this species. But the fruits somewhat resemble that of T. chebula.
[Thanks to … for sharing their pictures of Terminalia].

Terminalia citrina

Tree for identification. Assam : Attachments (2). 6 posts by 4 authors.
This photograph is not great but if the tree species can be identified from its fruits I shall be obliged. This tree is on the road in Kaziranga, Assam. The bark is a splotchy pale in colour.

It looks like a Terminalia sp. to me, more of T. citrina. Pl. check.

The fruits of this species (T.citrina) look similar to T.chebula. How can one differentiate the fruits

To me it seems to be Terminalia chebula.

A reply from another thread from …:
Terminalia species, Kaziranga, Assam = T. citrina.

My question is not answered  i.e. How can one differentiate T.citrina from T.chebula.

Please look at the fruits:
Terminalia chebula = Fruits prominently 5-ribbed, often stipitate, never narrowing towards apex.
Terminalia citrina = Fruits faintly 5-ridged and grooved (not ribbed), mostly narrowing towards apex.
Please look at the fruits once again and decide yourself.

Thanks … for updating. As the photographs are not clear I could not differentiate.
