This is Lumnitzera racemosa.


Lumnitzera racemosa indeed. A fairly common mangrove species.
Surprisingly when I entered the genus name in the search window no results appeared. Is it true that this is getting discussed for the first time?
I remember observing this earlier but didn’t have proper images to post on the group.
