– The inflorescence suggests that this could most probably be a species of Mallottus. Since it is from Waynad, I think this could be Mallotus tetracoccus. Please refer the following links

Requesting id: (mixed thread): 4 correct images as above.

please find attached photos of a flowering tree near Jog Falls, Shimoga district, Karnataka


… looks like Mallotus philippensis … the inflorescence seems extraordinarily long … my guess may be wrong.


This is Mallotus tetracoccus (Roxb.) Kurz of Euphorbiaceae family.
In M. tetracoccus the leaves are broadly ovate accuminate, peltate brown fulvous stellate-tomentose beneath.


Please take a look at this portal.. http://thewesternghats.in/speciespage/species/show/27821 (most of you perhaps know it already) …they have a nice set of pictures… I have two questions:

FIRST THE BARK CUT.. i see this often… what is it and why do it? does it harm the tree. do the botanists get prior permission to do this?

SECOND question… what is the brown round stufff on the surface of the leaves that the site calls tomentose… ????

Yes, this is Mallotus tetracoccus based on Rottlera tetracocca Roxb. (1832). It is same as Mallotus ferrugineus, based on Rottlera ferruginea Roxb. (1832).  The date of publication is same for both.  However, Miquel (1860) was the first to unite the two species and he selected the name Rottlera ferruginea Roxb. for the combined species. Hence we have to honour his decision and call it Mallotus ferrugineus (Roxb.) Mull.Arg. instead of Mallotus tetracoccus (Roxb.) Kurz.

Thank you very much … for the local names and accepted name.

It is otherwise at The Plants List and WCSP.

Please guide.


I am simply following our own observations, as follows:

Rottlera tetracocca Roxb. (1832) is same as R. ferruginea Roxb. (1832) and Miquel (in 1860) was the first person to unite these two species and he selected the name Rottlera  ferrunigea Roxb. [now Mallotus ferrugineus (Roxb.) Mull.Arg.] as the name for the combined species and therefore this is the correct name to be adopted.


Thanks …; I am going with our observations; revised my notes at flickr.

Our key as given in Flora of India volume 23 leads on to Mallotus leucocarpus, so far known to occur in Meghalaya and Myanmar.


It is represented only by a few collections in Meghalaya. It is a new record for Mizoram. If any herbarium specimen is collected, then a nice paper may be written on this rare species


Images look similar to those of Mallotus roxburghianus posted by … from Assam.

May I request you to pl. have a look pl. 


Not similar with Mallotus roxburghianus


To me it seems to be Mallotus roxburghianus.


The leaves in Mallotus roxburghianus are clearly peltate at base which is not the case here. This is M. ferrugineus instead.

This is also not M. roxburghianus, nor M. leucocarpus as I thought earlier. . Looks like the common M. ferrugineus.


Thank you … I will amend.

Please help me with the name marleya of Mallotus ferrugineus, in Bangla script.

Given below is the spelling but I do know the meaning of the same. মার্লেয়া 


Thanks very very much … for this help.

The Assamese name for this species মৰলীয়া morolia – is quite close-sounding; may be of some help in validating the Bangla name.

Reference: XOBDO.

Names of Mallotus ferrugineus listed in Botanical Survey of India are jogi-malata, kasre-malata
Please validate whether जोगि मलाता and खस्त्रे मलाता are written correctly, else please help with valid name(s).

Thank you fir your mail. Did nit find any entryon Nepali names.
However, as per BSofI the correct names in Nepali would be जोगी मालता And कस्रे मालता.

Fwd: OBSERVATION ON A MALLOTUS SPECIES : 9 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (1)

One particular Mallotus species is quite common at Cooch Behar. I am not sure whether it is Mallotus roxburghianus or Mallotus paniculatus. As the fruits are ripe now I wanted to see what are the bird species visit this tree for the fruits. A surprise was waiting for me. I found that Cantao ocellatus bug (known as JEWEL BUG/ SHIELD-BACKED- BUG) breeds on this plant. I recorded this insect in large congregation on this plant. Literature says in India recorded host plant for this insect are Kigelia pinnata and Macaranga peltata. But in Singapore the host plant is Mallotus paniculatus.

Attaching a collage of this observation. Can anybody tell me the identity of this Mallotus species?

It is not possible to name the species with this collage as most characters of the leaves and their arrangement and closer details of fruits are not available.

If … posts individual images, it may be helpful.

If … can send individual images, okay otherwise I will try with the second collage.

I think this is Mallotus ferrugineus. Please compare under eFI site where the species has been shelved off under a synonym, M. tetracoccus posted by …

Seven individual images are attached. May help.

Have a good day.

I initially thought of Mallotus nepalensis but here the inflorescences are paniculate pointing to M. ferruginous.

Is it Mallotus paniculatus var. paniculatus ?


I do not know.


Please check if it is Mallotus tetracoccus!


No, not M. tetracoccus.


Perhaps this key based on Fl. of China and Flora of Thailand should help

Female inflorescence unbranched, fruit densely softly spiny, 15 mm across ……… M. nepalensis
Female inflorescence branched, fruit 10 mm across ……. 2
Fruit 3-locular, with few (ca 30) 4-5 mm long spines; leaf base cuneate, broadest  in portion from lower third to middle, basal glands 2, basal veins 3-5 …… M. paniculata
Fruit 4-locular (commonly), with numerous (ca 100) short less than 3 mm long  spines; leaf base rounded or truncate, broadest below lower third, basal glands 2-4, basal veins 3 ….. M. tetracoccus

May be … has better key from his book.


Fruiting specimens will reveal the true identity. Till then I call it Mallotus nepalensis var. nepalensis.


I think this is Mallotus tetracoccus.


Mallotus ferrugineus (syn. M. tetracoccus) has pyramidal-paniculate inflorescences which the present sample is lacking. It is not possible for me to resolve the problem or question unless I see the fruiting material.


To me appears close to images and details at Mallotus tetracoccus
Both WCSP & Catalogue of Life give Mallotus ferrugineus as its synonym.

This is typical Mallotus tetracoccus.

I am yet to know the name of this species.

Kindly help me to know the name

Resembles Euphorbiaceae, Mallotus sp.,


Thank you Sir. I agree with …

Is it Mallotus paniculatus ?


I think more closer to Mallotus tetracoccus (Roxb.) Kurz rather than Mallotus paniculatus (Lam.) Müll.Arg. as per comparative images at Mallotus

You are right …, Mallotus tertacocus.
