Habit: Tree

Kannada names of Homalium ceylanicum : 6 posts by 3 authors.
Please help me with the following names of Homalium ceylanicum in native script …
ಕಾಲ kala is name for Homalium ceylanicum listed in Latin and Kannada names of indigenous and medicinal plants of Mysore by S G Narsimhachar
There is a name kalamattiga listed in Biotik
http://www.biotik.org/india/species/h/homazeyl/homazeyl_en.html
How would it be written: ಕಾಲಮತ್ತಿಗ / ಕಾಲಮತ್ತಿಗಾ / ಕಾಲಮಟ್ಟಿಗ / ಕಾಲಮಟ್ಟಿಗಾ ?
Another name listed in Biotik is hulikaddi mara … please validate whether ಹುಳಿಕಡ್ಡಿ ಮರ is correctly written.

Thanks …
I have got them validated from facebook.
hulikaddi mara … as … ಹುಳಿಕಡ್ಡಿ ಮರ
kalamattiga
… as … ಕಳಮಟ್ಟಿಗ


ಕಾಲ kala :    Name given / suggested  by S G Narsimhachar  must be coorect  as he was a Great  Botanist (Embryologist)  and knew  both Kannada  and English   very well, rather a scholar in my view.

Correct  transliteration of  kalamattiga  is ಕಾಲಮಟ್ಟಿಗ

ಹುಳಿಕಡ್ಡಿ ಮರ is correctly written.  ಹುಳಿ  means sour (like tamarind juice ) ; ಕಡ್ಡಿ  means stick;  ಮರ means tree.     It is not possible to spell  ಹುಳಿ correctly in English .  Huli is common for  ಹುಲಿ   (tiger) and ಹುಳಿ (sour)  .  In this connection   ಹುಳಿ  is more appropriate.      —-


Thank you very very much … for the meanings and clarifications.

I am happy about ಹುಳಿಕಡ್ಡಿ ಮರ hulikaddi mara. It transliterates to sour-stick tree. Perhaps the twigs are sour in taste !!

About kalamattiga, I too think it must be an extension of already known name ಕಾಲ kala. And thus would be ಕಾಲಮಟ್ಟಿಗ.

The Malayalam page of Biotik’s Homalium ceylanicum shows Malayalam transcription of the Kannada name as കല്‍മട്ടിഗ = ಕಳಮಟ್ಟಿಗ in Kannada … what do you think about this ? Could this be possibly in error ?


Thank you very much for your message.  Your presumption is correct. ಕಳಮಟ್ಟಿಗ  might be an error. In my view,
ಕಾಲಮಟ್ಟಿಗ  is correct, rather very appropriate.

I appreciate your sincere efforts to  provide local names in correct form.


Thank you very very much … for this validation. Glad that the name is compiled in its correct form.

I will make corrections accordingly.

Please help me in identifying the shrub found on the road-sides of a scrub forest.
Is this any Euphorbiaceae plant?
Leaf: up to 15 cm long
Date: 27 Sep 2013
Alt.: 500 m asl
Place: Chinnamanur range of Megamalai, Theni, TN

Its a species of Homalium. It could be H. zeylanicum or H. travancoricum


Could this be Homalium zeylanicum? Pictures in BIOTIK


Homaliumsome‎ species in India & eFI with some keys


It will be Homalium ceylanicum as per images and details herein.

Looks different from Homalium travancoricum Bedd.

I think it is very difficult to id, with such images without flowers and fruits.


I agree with you.


Homalium ceylanicum by any chance ?


Bark and leaves appear similar to images at Tree from Talakona


Yes, it’s
