Perhaps this is not clustered as I thought initially and in that case it seems to be Areca catechu L.

fruits seem to be supuri

Somehow I have a feeling that it doesn’t look the exact SUPURI I see around. At the same time it is also true that since SUPURI is very common I have never observed their features. I was thinking if it can be some other Areca.

Areca species in efi so far.

I think first picture is different.

First one a Dyspsis, other three Areca

It seems the first image is an ornamental palm, remaining all are Areca catechu

Yes, the first pic is different from the rest. I thank you all for ID help.

Barring the first picture (P1110355.jpg) this species is Areca macrocalyx Zipp. ex Blume.

A correction – fruiting pattern suggests it is Areca tetrandra Roxb. ex Buch.-Ham.
