Terminalia metallica

I could not find any species like Terminalia metallica

I hope it qualifies well for Terminalia mantaly….

I too agree with …


Tree for Id – ID16072021SH2:
Tree for Id pl.There was a huge canopy of these trees in a Resort which was giving cool shade. I couldn’t take photos from top angle.
Location – Nagpur

Terminalia mentaly

But Terminalia mantaly leaves look very different.

I think matches with images at Terminalia neotaliala (Cultivated)

Images of T.mentaly and T.neotaliala are very confusing on Google. In some of the images, it’s given under the same name. I am confused.
