Bridelia stipularis (L.) Blume


Seems to be B. montana.

efi site pages on Bridelia stipularis and Bridelia montana


Yes it is Bridelia montana (Roxb.) Willd.


I think more closer to images at Bridelia stipularis rather than those at Bridelia montana
But not sure of the id.

There is no doubt in Bridelia montana, Dumb sure it’s not Stipularis.

I also collected both plant specimens.

As per picture I think collected from the deciduous forest, open scrub jungles,

B. stupularis habit is moist deciduous and especially water flowing areas (streams).

I think Bridelia stipularis is correct identification.

I have doubt in this, please, am earlier identified like this, is it correct or wrong. 
Kindly request to you, please. 

3 images.


First three B. montana another three B. stipularis. this is my identification.


The single image which was posted is not at all clear.

All the present images are certainly of Bridelia montana.

You are right about the habitat. Collcted from dry deciduous forests degraded to open scrub ones. Not moist deciduous, and not close to a water stream.
