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
Altitude :<500 ft
Leaves :pinnate; aromatic; similar to Murraya koenegii
Local name : Anam Palam in Tamil
? not recognised in the plant list; equated with Clausena anisata
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.: C. heptaphylla 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 :
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 dentata. Clausena 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?
From here it is inferred that Clausena dentata (Willd.) M.Roem. is a synonym of Clausena anisata (Willd.) Hook.f. ex Benth.
Habit : Shrub
Hbitat : Wild
Looks like Clausena anisata (Willd.) J.Hk. ex Benth. – RUTACEAE
might be Clausena sp.

Euphorbiaceae member ???
Yes sir I think its Croton sp.
I could not find a match as per comparative images at Croton.
It reminds me of Murraya paniculata.
But if I’m not wrong Murraya paniculata has big white flowers?
Sorry I do not recognise this plant….. but I do not believe it is a match for Murraya paniculata.
See my images below.
The leaves match with Murraya paniculata and they are aromatic, as mentioned by … I’m guessing the posted plant is in a stressed condition which accounts for the shrivelled flower buds. Of course it is quite unlike the garden cultivated “kamini” most people are familiar with.
I have zoomed in to see the detail on the flower.
It is extremely clear.
Does this change any ones thoughts.
Detail on image is amazing.
Any chance of any more pics?
So sorry…wish I could edit!
I hope you can come up with a better guess than mine!
Murraya paniculata can have either 4 or 5 petals and up to 10 stamens.
It is not Murraya paniculata. I have Murraya in my garden.
I assume it was cultivated.
The species name (anisata) alludes to the crushed leaves being akin to saunf (aniseed) as remarked by …
Thank you sir for your help
I’m reattaching image of plant.
On www I have found a pic of the flower buds in round 4 part balls, that match perfectly with what I could see in the images.
I am so thrilled that it has been id’d!
More re Clausena anisata.
It had to be a Rutaceae member. I had discounted Clausena early on because the leaves are so unlike those I have seen in the wild. It seems they are variable.
ID Chinnar 01: 2 high res. images.
Please identify this small tree from Chinnar WLS, Kerala. 5/5/22
Seems to be a species of Clausena
