It is indeed a rare species. You can publish a short note on this species. It is very poorly known in South India. Recorded in cultivation from Indian Botanic Garden Kolkata and Andamans. If you need references, contact me.

Shot today by Dr. T. K. Paul at Indian Botanical Gardens, Howrah.
The one at Lalbagh Botanical Gardens is in a sorry state. Half of it has dried up.
Raman Ji was kind enough to show me earlier.
I have taken some pictures last month.
This was clicked at the Indian Botanic Garden (AJBC Garden) at Shibpur, Howrah, WB in December 2021.
Nameplate identified it as Mischodon zeylanicus.
I guess pics of this tree are already present in the efi database.
Luckily I observed it in the flowering stage.
I guess the correct ID !
Nice upload of a very distinct species under Picrodendreae family. For the first time I am coming across this family.
