PLEASE IDENTIFY THE SYZYGIUM: THIS IS PLANT WITH QUADRANGULAR STEM.  


Sterile specimens are difficult to identify.  Do you have the flower?
Free or coherent petalled? The 1st possibility is Syzygium assimile Thwaites, Enum. Pl. Zeyl.: 116 (1859).


If its from south or central Western Ghats then it could be Syzigium tamilnadense


There are two possibilities:
Syzygium travancoricum or Syzygium stocksii. If it is smelled like tender mango, it must be S. travancoricum. S. stocksii doesn’t have such characteristic smell


LEAVES HAVE SMELL LIKE TENDER MANGO


Then it should be Syzygium travancoricum Gamble


We, at present, work on the pollination ecology, seed dispersal and recruitment of 5 species of Syzygiums this species is one among them.
There is hardly any difference between S. travencoricum and S. stocksii in its floral characters.
This species has been reported from Kerala and Karnataka that too from few remote places. Red listed plant according to IUCN.


The specimens are of Syzygium travancoricum Gamble (MYRTACEAE), an endemic species of southern Western Ghats.

Garcinia ? SN Sep 59 : 6 posts by 5 authors. Attachments (3).
Cultivated tree near Gudalur Nilgiri dt Tamilnadu, leaves give mango smell when crushed.


Possibly some Syzygium sp.


It seems to Garcinia talboti


It doesn’t look like Garcinia to me


I too think it is a Syzygium sp?


Syzygium travancoricum
