IDENTITY: Attaching two images of a plant. The first image is of flowers and the second of the fruit.

I will remain grateful if you please identify it.


This is a species of Calicarpa possibly C.longifolia.


Yes …, you are right
Callicarpa sp.


Yes I too agree with Callicarpa sp.


May be Callicarpa arborea


It can’t be Callicarpa arborea, which is a tree of 8m tall. I think … is correct. At least search of google indicates the plant to be Callicarpa longifolia


The plant is from North Bengal. I have seen it at Assam also. I am with …, most likely the plant is Callicarpa longifolia.

the indian beautyberry
Sanskrit name : Priyangu I think


One name same in Nepali as well since Hindi and Nepali both are same. Devanagiri script and derived from Sanskrit !


I think it should be Callicarpa longifolia Lam. as per keys and comparative images at Callicarpa
Catalogue of Life gives its distribution as Andaman Is.; Assam; Bangladesh; Bismarck Archipelago; Borneo; Cambodia; China South-Central; China Southeast; Christmas I.; East Himalaya; Hainan; Jawa; Lesser Sunda Is.; Malaya; Maluku; Myanmar; New Guinea; Nicobar Is.; Philippines; Queensland; Sulawesi; Sumatera; Taiwan; Thailand; Vietnam; West Himalaya.
It is also reported in Flora of Bhutan.
WCSP gives its distribution as Trop. & Subtrop. Asia to Queensland
So I feel that it may very well be available in Nepal also at such low elevation.
