Small tree for identification 240712MK02:

Please help me to identify this tree found in a cardamom estate in Vaalparai of western ghats.
Leaflet: 8×3 cm; fruits measures 2.5 cm across.
Place: Vaalparai, TN
Date: 13 July 2012
Habitat: near rain forest

Alt: 950 m asl


Probably it is Aglaia leptantha Miq.

Reference http://www.asianplant.net/Meliaceae/Aglaia_leptantha.htm


The leaves are very different in A.leptantha; and it is not reported from Tamil Nadu until now. Could this be Garuga floribunda?


Could it be Spondias bipinnata?


This is Clausena anisata belongs to Rutaceae


Thanks …, first I also doubted this to be a Rutaceae but there is hardly any fragrance and glands in leaves.


I confirmed this as Rutaceae as I could well smell the aromatic leaves.


Could this be Clausena indica?


This is Clausena anisata only not C.indica

Kindly identify this wild shrub found growing in the Arunachala reserve forest, Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu.

The 6-9 mm diameter pale green fruit, with translucent skin when ripe, has a sweet pulp with a lemony flavour. It is called nana pazham by the locals. The shrubs attains a height of about 3 metres. Leaves are about 3 cms in length.


This appears to be a Clausena sp. of Rutaceae; either C. indica (Dalz.) Oliver or Clausena austroindica Stone & K.N. Nair (Syn.:  Cheptaphylla sensu Hook.f.)


It could be Clausena anisata. Also called in Tamil as ‘Kattu karivaeppilai’ (= wild curry leaf).


It seems to me some species of Clausena of Rutaceae


Most probably it is Clausena indica


I think it is Clausena dentata
You can check it here :
http://www.pitchandikulam-herbarium.org/herbarium.php?id=42


This is Clausena species for sure. I have seen this plant in  Chennai. Used for diabetes. How about Clausena anisata ?


From the photographs and information on the pitchandikulam herbarium referred above I would concur that the species here is Clausena dentataClausena anisata description says that the fruit ripens to red or purplish black. this is not the case with this plant since here the ripe fruit is translucent pale green to white.


Clausena dentata of Rutaceae?


Pl. persue Clausena

From here it is inferred that Clausena dentata (Willd.) M.Roem. is a synonym of Clausena anisata (Willd.) Hook.f. ex Benth.


The plants in these pictures look like  Clausena anisata  (Willd.) Hook.f. ex Benth. var. anisata  (Syn: Clausena dentata (Willd.) M. Roemer (RUTACEAE).

For details, please see Molino in Bull. Mus. Hist. Nat ( Paris) 16: 128.1994; Nair and Nayar in Hajra et al., Fl. India 4: 321-322. 1997.

Looks like Clausena anisata (Willd.) J.Hk. ex Benth. – RUTACEAE


might be Clausena sp.
