If styles are 3-fid at apex, definitely it is Camellia kissii Wall., in image with flower, zoom does not work properly to know styles, but looking 3-fid.


What about the fruit looking pink growth. I had posted images from the same plant earlier also. This time I got flower too. I had posted fruits also for the second time in the earlier post whivh exactly look like C. kissi.

May be some abnormal growth like Gall etc.


I guess so but plant as such is C. kissi, is not it ?  


Yes to me also appears close as per images at Camellia kissi

Any idea about the family ?


Looks like Lauraceae member and leaves are infected, swollen into galls.


Did not find any match !

Camellia sp. from Lengteng, Mizoram: Please could I get an ID on this Camellia found in the north of Mizoram.
Date/Time: 4-01-2012 / 02:00PM

Location: Lengteng, Mizoram, India
Habitat: Open forest 1800m asl
Plant habit: Large shrub


there are two wild relatives of tea in NE states-Camellia kissi and Camellia caduca and they should be checked if the Mizoram plant is native and wild.- I did collect one in Gangtok near Sichey Bustie on slopes of Teesta which hooker also noticed. Plant genetic resources of sikkim by myself in BOBSI 1994 and some other papers -refer to dcsraju google scholar


That is very helpful and Camella kissi looks very similar to the Camellia I found on the mountain. The Camellia I found was growing in various places in virgin forest and I believe it is part of a natural population.


Kew have C. caduca down as a synonym of C. kissi. … and I found much slimmer leaved apparently wild plants on two mountains in E. Manipur.
