found growing in wild, and this particular one along roadside
Nice pics.. Could this be Rhus mysorensis ???
Thank you very very much, dear …; great help.
I checked group’s archive and FOI; indeed Rhus mysorensis.
I attached one image from Rajasthan
nice to see your post from Pachmarhi
this plant is Rhus parviflora Roxb. from Anacardiaceae Family.
Rhus mysorensis Anacardiaceae
Many thanks … and … for the help.
It is good to go with … ID of Rhus parviflora, since posted plant is from his home ground.
Thank you very very much Nayan ji for the ID.
Going by what is put at NPGS / GRIN, Rhus parviflora Roxb. is treated as synonym of Toxicodendron parviflorum (Roxb.) Kuntze
Please revert if you think it is best to retain Rhus parviflora Roxb. as per Indian flora.
Yes I had some doubts calling it as Rhus Mysorensis because the leaflets of the plant snapped by me are much serrate/dentate to the extent that they are almost lobed. Here they are much different so … has to be right. Have yet to encounter with Rhus parviflora.
Yes I was posted there as Field Director Satpura Tiger Reserve for three year. For last two years I am posted in Bhopal.
Rhus parviflora is suppose to be one of the few Himalayan Plants found in Pachmarhi hills.
I also go with Rhus parviflora Roxb., I have collected this from Morni Hills in Haryana..
very common there and known as “Murti” in local tongue..
Rhus page (Anacardiaceae) with images of species in efloraofindia : (mixed thread) ……………….
………… Rhus parviflora, although an unresolved name in ‘The Plant List’, may be included until it is finally settled somewhere. All the Floras on Himachal Pradesh have listed it under the same name. And moreover, it is quite different from other species available in India.
It is treated under Toxicodendron parviflorum Kuntze in efloraofindia.
