identification no100211sn1: Some more help for ids take at my farm.
Sapindaceae or Annonaceae or Verbenaceae?: I send you again pictures of the last “like Verbenaceae”.
This is not Humboldtia decurrens
it is not Filicum decpiens as the leaflet apexin this case is acuminate and the winged ares is narrow where as in Filicum decipiens the winged portion is broad and rounded at apex and leaflets acute.
I think it is going near to some Rhus sp. (Anacardiaceae)
Strangler fig – Dandeli WLS: Strangler fig in Dandeli. Not sure what the host tree is!
More than 23 species of Ficus has been recorded from the Western Ghats. Most of them start their life as straggler because the get dispersed by birds and germinate on the branches of trees.
Unless you get the close up of at least the leaves with petiole where you can clearly see the venation, characteristics of fig is also important to confirm the species. Sometimes you need the fig in hand and dissect to see characters hidden inside the fig.
Unidentified tree – Anshi NP: Is this Dipterocarpus indicus? Sorry I do not have pictures of the leaves.
Based on the photograph of the trunk it is generally not possible to identify the taxa. One should always send the closeups of foliage, flowers, fruits (whatever available) and details of the plant for ID.
You may also follow the guidelines of eflora while posting the plants for ID.
It is surely not Dipterocarpus but my wild guess for stands for Diospyros sp.
Need tree ID – Dandeli: Came across this huge tree in Dandeli. Unfortunately I do not have any pictures of the leaves.
None of the characters that leads to even guess to id the plant are not available from the pictures posted here. Please upload pictures of leaves flowers or fruits/twigs, if available.
ID Request 160411SP03: Found near mangroves. Is this Haplanthodes sp.?
– It is at least hard for me to confirm as the plant doesn’t have leaves and flowers
– Looking at this specimen…i can only say it is angiospermae 😉
Request for ID : 271210 : AK-1: A garden plant at Royal Botanic Gardens, Peradeniya, Kandy, Sri Lanka
A Wasp: Not a plant frankly, but the wasp looked quite busy and nice doing whatever wasps do.
Patuli Kolkata, India
3 june 2011
Could someone tell me which plant it is on?
I request you to post photos of the habit, leaf and the inflorescence of the plant. With this photo, we can only guess the identity.
A Wasp: Lovely pix. The plant appear to be a Poinsettia, Euphorbia sps, but a wild one, found quite commonly in Kolkata. One can see the fairly large leaf, serrated at the edges, veined all over and the collection of incomplete flower w/o the red petals.
Pl. identify following plant.
place: Dalhousiae, Chamba district in Himachal Pradesh
Not Daphne, the flowers are too large. May be Rhododendron
Those leaves look serrate to me and the undersurface of the leaves dont point towards Rhododendron. I may be wrong though. Actually I cant remember of any Rhododendron which doesnt have pale pubescent undersurface of leaf.
ID FOR WOODY CLIMBER: SORRY FOR POOR PHOTO
please provide details as per guidelines
Please provide, at least, a close up of branch so that we can see the leaves and available characters in detail.
FORWARDING THE PHOTO OF LEAF (JUST LIKE SEMAL TREE): I AM RESIDING IN RAJKOT GUJARAT AND IN OUR CITY WE HAVE SOME 4 ODD TREES WHICH ARE LOOK-A-LIKE TO SEMAL TREE (INDIAN COTTON TREE) BUT I HAVE SEARCHED THE I-NET BUT I HAVE FOUND OUT THAT THIS TREES SEEMS SOME KIND OF DIFFERENT TO ME AS THERE ARE NO THORNS ON THE TRUNK, NETHER IT BEARS THE CUCUMBER LIKE FRUITS FROM WHICH COTTON THREADS ARE EXTRACTED.
I AM NO EXPERT IN THIS NOR ANY RESEARCHER SIR, BUT I AM CURIOUS TO FIND OUT RICH NATURAL RESOURSES OF OUR REGION, IN GENERAL FOR OUR INDIA, I THINK NO BODY IS GIVING SUCH DEVOTED TIME FOR EXTENSIVE SURVEY OR IDENTIFICATION OF RICH BIO-DIVERSITY OF INDIAN SUBCONTINENT.
I’M SENDING THE LEAF (COPY SCANNED) FOR SOME INFORMATION ON THIS SPECIES.
Shrub No.3 for ID plz.:
fruits and veges: Pls identify the cucurbit.
Is this by any chance any cultivar of *Lagenaria siceraria*
To me, it looks like a Marsh melon before it is ripe? A wild guess.
