ANFEB08 Ixora sp. for identification : 9 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (8)

Does not seem to be Ixora brachiata but I could be wrong.
Family: Rubiaceae
Date: 1st February 2015
Place: Agumbe, Karnataka

Habit: Tree

Chassalia curviflora var. ophioxyloides ?

Thank you … But I am not sure if all the features match. Please see http://florakarnataka.ces.iisc.ernet.in/hjcb2/herbsheet.php?id=4032&cat=1.

It is not Chassalia curviflora var. ophioxyloides. It comes closer to Wendlandia thyrsoidea but it is not so and appears to be a new one.  But, it is wrong to identify without dissecting flowers and studying morphological characters.

Thank you very much … I will leave it as Wendlandia sp. as per your suggestion. Thank you once again.

It may be Wendlandia thyrsoidea

A midsized tree observed near Velhe Maharashtra

Wendlandia sp.

Thank you very much Anurag ji
It looks like Wendlandia thyrsoidea as the leaves in my pictures mostly look whorled.
They seem to more elliptic lanceolate too rather than ovate lanceolate as in W. heynei
