Nice pictures! But they don’t look like Phyllanthus wightianus (= Reidia floribunda) to me.

Here is a picture of the latter species taken from Kolli Hills of Tamil Nadu (Photo by Dr. Ravikumar).
As far as I know, this species occurs only in southern part of India (and Sri Lanka & E. Africa).

I look forward to know the id of your plant.


Where Vijaysankar Ji stops i should not step forward, so i waited for experts’ views! But, …….

Fl. Br. Ind. vol5, p 286 informs “Sect. VII” Reidia of Phyllanthus has 1) sepals 4 on male flowers and 2) sepals 4 or 6 in female = http://plantillustrations.org/illustration.php?id_illustration=130982 (or http://www.botanicus.org/page/827628)

There end my cap.


Phyllanthus sikkimensis


I am pleased to know the ID of this species. Thanks a lot, …! Thanks …, for posting this plant.

It is interesting to note the 4-merous male flowers with fimbriate-margined sepals and the ‘crispy papillose-puberulous’ fruits!

The plant can grow up to 3 m tall, it seems!

Thanks … for the re-search. Yes, this plant has earlier been treated as Reidia hamiltoniana.


If I am not mistaken the picture no.10 (IMG_2809) and pic 7 (IMG_2826) are showing pistillate flowers having 5 sepals. This goes against the claim at – http://www.nationaalherbarium.nl/ThaiEuph/ThPspecies/ThPhyllanthus.htm#Phyllanthus_sikkimensis where it has been stated the number of sepals in pistillate flower is 6.

Yes, I fully agree. Further close up of the pink male flowers will show 4 sepals, lacerate or fimbriate along margins.
