The species in the thread is not Pavetta indica L.
The species in that thread was Ixora undulata Roxb.
And also the other threads I sent with the title – Ixora undulata Roxb.
Here is the species Pavetta indica L., a wild shrub (it is yet to grow to be a stout shrub) growing along with other wild species like Streblus asper, Suregada multiflora, Cyratia pedata …. etc.
this is pavata indica : 3 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (1)
Do you mean Pavetta indica (Rubiaceae), a shrub or small tree with white flowers?
I think it must be Pavetta indica only.

On 7/6/09 in Lotus Pond, Hyderabad, AP. I hope Id is correct.
Hope this is Pavetta indica with glabrous leaves.. there’s another var. tomentosa with glabrescent leaves which is much common and blooming now, in the lateritic soils of uttara Kannada..

Found across roadside near Chennai in Kanchipuram district.
Shrub around 1 metre in height.
Pavetta indica. In Tamil it’s called Pavattai
Appears so as per keys at Flora of Eastern Ghats: Hill Ranges of South East India, Volume 3 By Thamminen Pullaiah, K. Sri Ramamurthy (Description & Keys- Pavetta indica, P. breviflora, P. tomentosa & P. hispidula)
Thanks for the research and conforming. Learned about a new book.
This flora I found in Javadhu hills and Vandalur hills of Tamil nadu very commonly.
But the attached plant was in roadside.

Any idea about family?
No idea but it could be Rubiaceae
A species of Pavetta
Pavetta crassicaulis… but that’s a shrub. May be it has grown to a small tree.
It is Pavetta indica very common in Eastern ghats
As per Request for ID : 290310-AK-3 , Pavetta indica is distributed from Indian Subcontinent to S. China and Pen. Malaysia whereas Pavetta crasscaulis is distributed in West and South India. This is according to Kew.

Posting pictures of Tarenna asiatica (L.) Kuntze ex K. Schum. of Rubiaceae.
Could this be any variety of the species?
Tamil Name: Therani
Location: Sathyamangalam RF
Altitude: 300 – 400 MSL
Date: 20 June 2010
Please verify, if this id is wrong.
Its look like a Pavetta sp.
Pavetta – Flowers 4-merous, style glabrous, exerted and unbranched
Looks like Pavetta species
In flora Flora of Ceylon the description provided does not match with the plant the main point of controversy of this plant being Tarenna sp is the stigma exerted over a long style. hence this is Pavetta zeylanica as said by …
I am quite sure that the plant you have posted is not that of Tarenna asiatica but again some Pavetta species.
I think this plant is Pavetta indica.
Yes …, it’s Pavetta only,

Earlier I thought it was Pavetta indica but now I have some doubt if this is Pavetta crassicaulis.
height:about 5-6 ft.
other info:earlier i had photographed fruits of Pavetta ,which was identified as indica. I don’t know if this is same.
It resembles to Pavetta indica
They are synonymous
couple of years ago we had a lot of discussion about pavetta
Eflora site says these are 2 different species.
I guess so.
I guess correct ID !
