The leaves were up to 15cm long.
Date: 16 July 2013
Alt.: 2000 m asl

Place: Kothagiri, Nilgiris, TN


This is Photinia integrifolia Lindl. from Rosaceae.


Interestingly,

India Biodiversity Portal (Photinia integrifolia Lindl. var. sublanceolata syn. Photinia notoniana Wt. & Arn.) & Biotik (Photinia integrifolia Lindl. var. sublanceolata syn. Photinia notoniana Wt. & Arn.) mention Photinia integrifolia Lindl. var. sublanceolata, while none of the following links talk of this variety:

Could it be Brazilian Pepper?


This Plant is indeed Brazilian Pepper [Schinus terebinthifolius; Family: Family – Anacardiaceae] . I support your identification of this plant. Please see in this link  hope you find the same plant…….


Don’t think this is Brazilian Pepper.


It could be syzygium sp


It looks to me Photinia integrifolia var. sublanceolata.


It seems to be Photinia sp. (Rosaceae).

This small tree was seen at Top-Station near Munnar.
Requesting ID..

Litsea floribunda. Leaf pictures would have helped to confirm I’d.


Inflorescence and leaf do not associate with Litsea or species related to Lauraceae.

Please check Wendlandia thyrsoidea.


Pittosporum sp.


I’d as Photinia integrifolia var. sublanceolata (Rosaceae) by … appears to be correct.

Photinia integrifolia Lindl.  ??


Looks different from images at Photinia integrifolia 


Someone suggested it to be Skimmia sp. but I did not find any match. However, stamen count, which is 20 in number, is matching to P. intregifolia.

Yes, it is most probably Photinia integrifolia.
