Altitude : ca. 400 m.
Habit : Small to middle-sized evergreen tree; somtimes small tree
Notes : It grows wild
. Fruit not eaten. 4-6 seedlings/saplings are usually growing in a place like a clump of bamboo

This is Connarus monocarpus. Please check this link : Google Groups

It is Bhesa robusta (Roxb.) Ding Hou

I do not think it is either. The leaves are divided like that of Connarus (But not Bhesa) but the fruit looks different. The base is too regular and not oblique as in Connarus. And I cannot see the aril. Is it possible to send larger images? All l I can say it is not Celastraceae!

This tree might be Ormosia robusta.


Sir, I am attaching herewith another photos of same tree to help correct identification.

Pecharthal Tripura
Kindly identify the species

The fruits have some similarity to Manila tamarind. But not Manila tamarind.

Pl. check Ormosia robusta Baker


Only a  suggestion. I am not an expert. Looks like Ormosia species. I remember to have seen O.pinnata fruits looking somewhat similar to this.. But where? I do not know..

Thanks, …, for the genus id.
Appears close to Ormosia robusta Baker as per comparative images at Ormosia
Hi, …, What are the species reported from your area ? Do you have the keys?
