Kindly help me with the ID. Seen in Kudremukh, Bhagawathy nature camp. It had no fruits or flowers.


The tender leaves resemble that of Persea (Machilus) macrantha. If so it has to give phenolic smell after crushing the leaves.This is just a wild guess.


I think this is Persea macrantha

Persea macrantha (Nees) Kosterm. [Lauraceae].
Two of the very same photographs in this thread (IMG_4362.JPG & IMG_4363.JPG) were posted by Yuvraj Patil ji last year!

.

Tree seen in Lalbagh today (20.1.20)


May be a Persea sp.  Need better images of leaves.


Thanks a lot for suggesting Persea.

I will revisit the place in a couple of days. Will click more pictures.


Pl. check comparative images at /species/a—l/l/lauraceae/persea


Adding more pictures taken today.
I could see tiny green fruits.

It seems to be Persea macrantha.


.



Please identify these flowers , photographed at Karbi Anglong (Assam)
3 images.
For me its Castanopsus lanceifolia. Please confirm.


Inflorescence looks different as per POWO & Plant illustrations

Looks something different.


Appears to be some Lauraceae member.

Pl. check Ocotea/ Persea species like Ocotea lancifolia (Schott) Mez


Fruits of the same tree.


These may be from some other tree.


Looks like Lauraceae. Some Persea species?


The attached images are not of Castanopsis lanceifolia (Roxb.) Hickel & A.Camus
Its look like Machilus glaucescens (Nees) Wight
Ocotea glaucescens Nees
Persea macrantha (Nees) Kosterm.
see this for detail
