Many thanks to … for the ID.

Here is the picture that shows Pitto-sporum, resinous seeds.

Yes it is Pittosporum napaulense (DC.) Rehder & E.H. Wilson (= Pittosporum floribundum Wight & Arn) 

This to me appears more closer to Pittosporum dasycaulon Miq. as per GBIF.
Looks different from images at Pittosporum napaulense (DC.) Rehder & E.H. Wilson

Pittosporum dasycaulon Miq. … (family: Pittosporaceae) 

May be Pittosporum napaulense as inflorescence of Pittosporum dasycaulon looks different.
But I am not sure.
Pl. confirm.

Thanks … for resurfacing this post for validation.
This ID came from …, and I am convinced about it as Pittosporum dasycaulon.
The  the fruit cluster reminds of the dense flower cluster.
Inflorescence of Pittosporum napaulense is much sparser (not dense / close as seen in P. dasycaulon).

Thanks, … That may be possible as I was vacillating between the two, time and again. So decided to put my views here.


Image by Aung SI at Flora of Karnataka should be of Pittosporum napaulense as per images and details herein.
Pl. correct.

Looking at the seed image ( my post) and distribution it  you may be right …!
