Species, genera & family pages of‎‎‎ Staphyleaceae ‎‎‎are now with comparative images. On clicking the link of species, one can check the complete details. Genus pages generally give details of most of the species found in India.

May I request you to pl. go through & point out mistakes, if any. I hope this will aid in identifications in future. If anybody can send images of other species of this family (for incorporation in the website), if any, or can identify unidentified/ wrongly identified images, it will be really nice.
