– This is Dimorphocalyx lawianus, a small tree of Euphorbiaceae. It has unisexual flowers, the one seen in the picture is a female flower with broadly lobed calyx.
Bot. name: Dimorphocalyx lawianus
– here are mine from Matheran taken in October 2010. Dimorphocalyx lawianus (Muell.-Arg.) Hook. is the synonym of Dimorphocalyx ramiflorus (Graham ) Almeida (comb. nov.). An explanation of this neotype is given in Dr. Almeida’s flora.
… this is the female flower showing enlarged calyx. The male flowers have a simple calyx, hence the name dimorpho calyx. Both unisexual flowers are seen on the same plant (monoecious).
Other relevant information is as follows:
Place : Matheran
Habit: A small Tree
Features: The calyx lobes were increadibly large.
Would appreciate identification.
I remember … has shown us flowers of this on Sep 20th. … had responded with description of it. You may search the earlier mails for it.
Incredibly strange looking fruit…
That is Dimorphocalyx lawianus and the flower that you are holding, …, is male.

Yes, it is , thank you very much for ID my plant and providing ID link,
It appears to be Dimorphocalyx glabellus var. lawianus (Hook.f.) Chakrab. & N.P.Balakr., as per keys in BSI Flora of India.
it is not D.glabellus, the leaves have impressed veins, not found in glabellus; the ovary is very hispid; the calyx lobes shape is also different; it must be some other species,
This is what BSI Flora of India says:
Leaves elliptic, oblong to obovate or oblanceolate, rounded, obtuse to acute at base, shallowly glandular-crenulate (particularly in young leaves), crenate-serrate to entire along margins, acuminate to acute or often obtuse to rounded at apex, 4.5 – 19 x 2 – 7 cm, thinly coriaceous to chartaceous; lateral nerves 6 – 14 pairs; petioles 2 – 20 mm long.
The identification is correct. Accepted name: Tritaxis glabella (Thwaites) R.Y.Yu & Welzen var. praerervisa Chakrab. & G.Krishna.
Yes, it is, thank you very much for ID my plant,
