Sorry for the poor quality photographs.
Thought of not posting this, but then decided to go ahead.
This was seen near Govindghat,

Suggestive of Acer oblongum, but I can’t see the paired samaras.

Inflorescence looks like Carpinus viminea, but leaves look thicker.

Thanks a lot … I think you are right. Of the two species to my knowledge from Western Himalayas, C.fangiana has leaves with 14-25 pairs of lateral veins, C. viminea 12-15 pairs on each side, which seems to fit well.

I was quite uncomfortable suggesting Acer as no double samara was visible, as mentioned by me earlier. Thanks you found the ID.


This was shot from Ghanghariya- Gobind Ghat Trek on 16.8.12…identification help is requested…this was a small tree…

… was the tree as in efi thread

Thanks for the link … but I am afraid this is not the tree I have put here for id….

Could it be Carpinus viminea . looks similar to one uploaded by … in fruits.

i am agree with …, it may be Carpinus vinimea.

It could be Carpinus sp. (Betulaceae).  

Carpinus viminea Wall. ex Lindl.  ??

Do you have any pictures of the leaves?
From the looks of it, it could be related to Shorea…, however, I seem to prefer it to be close to Carpinus viminea. It is a deciduous tree, but when there are no leaves, there are no infruitescens either. This does not match this photo..

There are no leaves at present. I shall wait for the coming 
season for leaves. However, I shall take it as Carpinus viminea Wall. ex Lindl.
