Manipur identifications 3: Is this a Brassaiopsis sp.? Fairly common in the general Ukhrul area.
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.
…, we found various similar species in N. Vietnam.
Brassaiopsis hainla (Buch.-Ham.) Seem.
Looks like Brassaiopsis polycantha

Macaranga indica Wight (accepted name)???
Nepali Names : मालाटा Maalaataa / मदेलो Madelo / मल्लेटो Malleto
This is not Macaranga. Try some other family!
There are leaves from two plants in the images.
Thank you … for pointing out.
The leaves in the background in the first image are of Macaranga but it is not possible to tell the name of the species without flowers and fruits.
This certainly seems to be from Araliaceae…
Looks different from images at Brassaiopsis hainla
Is this a woody climber?
Size of fruit?
Sorry, no Idea about it !
I hope my third attempt on of the same plant will help to establish ID as Brassaiopsis hainla !
Yes to me also appear close to images and illustrations at

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. !

Brassaiopsis hainla (Buch.-Ham.) Seem. ??
Was it planted?
Saroj sir, does that species grow up to be a large tree like this? I couldn’t find a similar picture of such a form for this species, online. …, this was wild (atleast, looked like it), and there were several of them together forming a small patch of the same tree.
It can grow upto 15 m. in height !
