Manipur identifications 3:
Yes! Brassaiopsis from me too. Our group member …, an expert of Araliaceae, can confirm the species.
Yes an Araliaceae member. We saw a huge tree of this in Laos, which is yet to be identified !!
I’m glad you agree. I didn’t think it could be anything else, but one mustn’t get too over confident when abroad! I very much look forward to … looking in. It would be great to get his opinion on the other Scheffleras we saw.

Macaranga indica Wight (accepted name)???
This is not Macaranga. Try some other family!
There are leaves from two plants in the images.
Thank you … for pointing out.
This certainly seems to be from Araliaceae…

An Araliaceae from a collection in Arunachal Pradesh has been distributed in different collections in Europe. Nobody knows its identity, although it is thought of a Brassaiopsis, although the trunk has no spines.
I attach different photographs to see if they could help to identify this species.
That is Brassaiopsis hainla (Buch.-Ham.) Seem. !
