Terminalia pallida?: 8 images.
Found this tree on the way to TP Kota water falls area, AP.
Yes, it’s Terminalia pallida
How to confirm it’s not T. chebula?
Because T. chebula has intraspecific variations and myself had found lot of variations in fruit size.
When I first saw the tree’s leaf it was totally different. My guess may be wrong.
Yes, you’re right sir,
Chebula leaves are completely different.
Leaves Ovate, rarely some are obovate, immersed nerves, chartaceous (Thin) ……. Chebula
Leaves Broadly obovate- orbicular, bullet nerves, Chartaceous (Leathery) …….. Pallida
Fruit clear ovoid, both sides equal beak from the centre of the fruit, clear ridges ….. chebula
Fruits seem rounded, slightly or slightly unequal beak at both sides, unclear ridges …… pallida.
