Zanthoxylum ovalifolium Wight, from the W.Ghats of Tirunelveli, Tamil Nadu.
I hope the id is correct!

No doubt this is Zanthoxylum ovalifolium

A new one for me… but I can easily see the family resemblance … seems to have a shared three leaflet arrangement of those in Limonia and Bael trees …

This was an interesting short tree from an evergreen forest.
I would like to know the genus it belongs too, if species is not possible.
Family: Rutaceae
Date: 5th April 2015
Place: Agumbe, Karnataka
Habit: Tree

Could this be Toddalia sp by any chance..

Thank you sir. Is there any species apart from Toddalia asiatica?

I could also find Toddalia bilocularis W. & A. (but it is not clear if this is the accepted name or Vepris bilocularis Engl.). Pl. see Toddalia

I can confirm that the 2 names Toddalia bilocularis W. & A. and Vepris bilocularis Engl. are synonyms, Vepris bilocularis Engl. being the preferred name. I have not covered these 2 genera in the MMPND yet.
I prefer to contact you directly when/ if I can help, because I cannot handle the forum, it is too intense and the mail is much too voluminous for me.

…, I am uncertain. Do I take it as Vepris bilocularis? … doesn’t actually mention if its being confirmed if the plant is Vepris bilocularis or not.

The image shows simple leaf.
So I think both Toddalia asiatica and bilocularis are ruled out because their leaves are trifoliate; also
asiatica has spines on the leaf blade.  (Not sure about bilocularis) .

If you are sure its Rutaceae (aromatic leaves ?) and it had long spines, you could check against Atalantia ..

Leaves are very much trifoliate. They tend to fall off easily and when the shrub was tugged at. Most likely not an Atalantia sp.

yes, when I looked again one of the pictures also shows the trifoliate leaf.
It could be Zanthoxylum ovalifolium.

Yes, It looks like Zanthoxylum ovalifolium
