Requesting to please ID this tree captured in Lalbagh, Bangalore in November 2013.
Aglaia sp (Meliaceae)
Recently posted from me from the same location and identified by … as Aglaia elaeagnoidea, Priyangu Tree.
Thank you … for the ID… I was at Lalbagh on the 12th of November, 2013.
Tree ID Please : Attachments (8). 4 posts by 4 authors.
Please help me identify this tree.
Location : North Paravur , Ernakulam , Kerala.
Type : Wild , Sacred grove.
It seems to be Lepisanthes tetraphylla of Sapindaceae.
I feel that the flowering twig is a species of Aglaia and I think the fruits are of a different tree (leaves are simple!)
Flowering twigs are of Aglaia elaeagnoidea and the fruiting branches represent some Rubiaceae member

Reinwardtiodendron anamallayanum is reported (= Lansium anamallayanum), where the leaflets are alternate and are with a gland at the angles of nerves in adaxial side.
It is an Aglaia sp. Probably A. elaeagnoidea

Please help in compiling Telugu name(s) of Aglaia elaeagnoidea
Following are listed at ENVIS – FRLHT: erranduga, kondanduga, yarra aduga, yerra adugu
Could yerra adugu be యెర్ర అడుగు ? (just a naive attempt)
They are often called as ఎర్ర అందుగ , కొండ అందుగ, very few called them ఎర్ర అదుగు, యెర్ర అడుగు

Aglaia sp? : 6 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (3)
Frequently found shrub from Hebri area Udupi dt, Karnataka area
It looks like Aglaia talbotii,
Thanks, … The Flora of India Volume 4 was published in 1997 after that there are many changes. Pl. see the details at Aglaia
Aglaia talbotii is a syn. of Aglaia elaeagnoidea as per the following:
Catalogue of Life (released on 27.6.16)
The Plant List Ver. 1.1 (2013)
IPNI notes it to be A. littoralis Talb which is also a syn. of Aglaia elaeagnoidea
As there are so many synonyms under Aglaia elaeagnoidea along with very wide distribution, means there is lot of variability in the species.
I am aware that Agalia talbotii syn A. littoralis Talb. has been merged with Agalia elaeagnoidea in most publications and it’s quite true that there’s a huge amount of variation in the species. Some specimens of Aglaia elaeagnoidea seen in northern Karnataka are very large trees.

I found in Kolli Hills in Eastern ghats of southern India. Locally they called the fruit Kan muzhi or muli fruit (as it resembles eye with black seed covered with white transparent flesh)
Any Diospyros sps.
Thanks for your reply. Nice try.
I used to eat persimmon fruit in UK.
But it was not like a persimmon fruit.
It was like Litchi fruit with black seed covered with a transparent white flesh.
It resembled like a Human eye, so in Tamil it was Kan Muli fruit.
The flora of kolli hills (On Eastern Ghats) is endemic I believe and yet to to be added to Database.But local people have known their use and given it a name based on their structures.
If it was not added to the Binomial nomenclature let’s keep your name or mine to it.
Simarouba glauca ? please check
Looking at the description provided by you it could be Pouteria caimito; Sapotaceae.
No. Flowering season was over and fruiting started. I could not able to get any flowers.
Its a hill station and I visited as a tourist.
I will visit again and pass to you(not in the near future).
The seed was round and black. (But your Pouteria caimito had elongated seeds)
Size of seed is around Marble (Pouteria caimito – the size is 20 times bigger than the original fruit)
This appears to be an Aglaia sp. [Meliaceae]. The photographs, though far from clear, do betray the presence of compound leaves!
I had taken it inside a forest. (Eastern Ghats, Kolli hills)
But, It was in a good height although I collected the fruits and seeds to germinate at my local place it did not work.
I ever never thought it would have local name and surprised to have a name as Eye (Kan muli in Tamil).
Locals was eating the fruits. Even I tried it. Almost like Litchie.
I should have taken it by having the fruits in my palm.
But you are very smart to find from compound leaves itself.
How did you find it?
when I was searching Aglaia sp. [Meliaceae] I found it to be Lansium domesticum.
Thanks a lot.
Lansium domesticum– Confirmed
I suppose the exotic Lansium parasiticum (syn. L. domesticum) is found in South India only under cultivation. Please check with the native Aglaia elaeagnoidea (A. Juss.) Benth. which has been reported wild from the Eastern Ghats (including Kolli Hills). There are some good photographs from the fruiting phase of this tree in the Digital Flora of Karnataka and in the India Biodiversity Portal.
To me this is Dimocarpus longan (Sapindaceae)
Aglaia elaeagnoidea is quite matching.
My mistake – I confused with Lancium domesticum
What a research!!! Hats off. You had given much details. Thanks for your time.
Aglaia elaeagnoidea is quite matching.
…, Thanks for your information..
Your fruit Dimocarpus longan is similiar, but the flesh is bit more than Aglaia elaeagnoidea.
May be distant relative (Still both belong to different family).
Interestingly both the local people of India and China have given the name as eye fruit.
Human brain works similar.
(The longan (from Cantonese lùhng-ngáahn 龍眼, literally “dragon eye”), is so named because it resembles an eyeball when its fruit is shelled (the black seed shows through the translucent flesh like a pupil/iris). )

Kindly id this tree found along the river bank. The mature fruits are orange in colour.
Place: Satyamangalan reserve forests

Pl check it for Aglaia.
Are fruits having sticky sweet juice?
The leaf morphology was useful to me thanks to you for taking the photos of the leaf so minutely. The plant is Aglaia roxburghiana Miq. as the the leaves arranged pinnately, with 4-5 leaflets (rarely 7 or 3), pale green in colour. Reference Bengal Plant By David Prain Volume 1 Page 317.
Attaching more pictures of the tree. Fruits have rusty tomentose surface. Attachments (4)
is it Ghol or Goti in marathi. the fruits are like chikku. Ripe fruits are available in local market in rainy season
Could this be Aglaia elaeagnoidea (Juss.) Benth. of Meliaceae?
