glochidon ellipticum, mahabaleshwar
small fragrant flowers
commonly called bhoma

Glochidion neilgherrense.


many thanks for the correction.
However I could not find much information on this species
It would be useful for me if you could give some keys or another way to differentiate this species
I would really be appreciate that

A further reply:
“Whatever identifications I made as Glochidion candolleanum (syn. G. neilgherrense) are actually referable to Glochidion hohenackeri.
Sorry for the mistake and inconveniences caused. Please inform everybody.”

glochidon ellipticum, mahabaleshwar

first week of march
commonly called bhoma and raat rani because of their fragrance
small tree, resembling a neem tree from distance
tiny whitish yellow flowers
saw quite a few trees while walking in the forest and on roadsides

Yes a Phyllanthaceae (Earlier Euphorbiaceae) member.
Thanks for sharing your observations and a huge collection of flora from Mahabaleshwar. It will certainly help those to know what to look for who are likely to travel there.


A reply from another thread:

A correction. Glochidion neilgherrense is a synonym of Glochidion candolleanum.

This identity needs to be re-visited by the expert.
I feel it’s G. lanceolarium.
Please visit thread (for keys & images)


Glochidion hohenackeri is one of the commonest species in south India.

Euphorbiaceae: Glochidion lanceolarium (Roxb.) Voigt @ Matheran :  Attachments (8). 3 posts by 2 authors.
Have tried to follow the keys from Fl India vol 23:
1b: Brannchlets and / or under surface of leaves glabrous …. 13 [-397]
13a: Inflorescence supra-axillary and / or pedunculate ……… 14 [-377 & 392]
14: Fruits prominantly lobed …… 15 [-381]
15: Leaves glossy; styles columnar or conical; fruits 15-30 mm in diameter [-397 & 376]
The interesting fact is that Fl. India does not mention Maharashtra in it’s distribution area list.
Fl. MH (Almeida) 4b:325 says; “I am not familiar with the identity of the species..” but adds Yadav & Sardesai have recorded the species from Kolhapur and maybe Londhe (2001) also identified the species in MH.
Just hope that I have identified it correctly.

Glochidion hohenackeri once again. It is one of the commonest Euphorbiaceae in Maharashtra.

Yes … It looks like Glochidion ellipticum. locally called as bhoma in maharashtra. Endemic to western ghats.


The deeply lobed capsules surmounted by subglobose styles point to Glochidion hohenackeri, Phyllanthaceae, Euphorbiaceae sens. lat.

Hopefully, these pics are enough to ID.

Glochidion hohenackeri.


It seems most of these species which we were observing and labelling G. ellipticum may be G. hohenackeri.
I need to recheck mine.

Glochidion ellipticum:
Small evergreen tree, of Euphorbiaceae family, usually common in high elevations (at slopes) in ever green forests of Eastern & Western Ghats. Photographed at Matheran in Feb & March`12. Locally known as “Bhoma


Yes ‘Bhoma’ fruits similar to small size Amla and flowers both look beautiful.


I gone through your earlier posting of Bhoma, that you reported from Tamhini, dated March `11. And that is also listed in Shrikant Ingalhalikar`s book on ‘Trees of Pune’ which was my base for IDing it at Matheran, as field guide.


I think it is more closer to images at Glochidion hohenackeri (Müll.Arg.) Bedd. rather than those at Glochidion ellipticum Wight

Glochidion eriocarpum IF THE FRUITS HAVE HAIRS OVER IT (I cant make out).


Affirmative … This is Bhoma [G.ellipticum] previously Glochiodon hohenackeri.

Thanks for the validation and  nice pictures. The fruits seem to have variable sections six seven or eight.

This time it is Glochidion ellipticum. However, the style character does not match. Could it be a hybrid with G. Candolleanum.
