Can you id this plant
Euphorbiaceae!!! but which one?
Euphorbiaceae for sure but not sure of the name
it is Suregada angustifolia i think.
Thanks … I think you are right!!
Looks different from images at
Yes, good image of Suregada angustifolia.
Thanks, … But why the leaves look different from the images at the links?
I overlooked. The leaves are opposite here, crenulate, fruits solitary, 3-lobed. This should be Excoecaria crenulata Wight.
Thank you once again for pointing out.
Appears to be from Euphorbiaceae.
Ok, thank you very much dear … Good population here in a 50 meter square area, but rare.
Pl. check Excoecaria species:
To me appears close to images of Excoecaria crenulata at
Yes it is Excoecaria crenulata, dear …, thank you very much for ID my plant and sharing ID link,
The fruit image in the 7th message is of Actephila excelsa which was wrongly posted, so please remove it. Hence I am sharing the true fruit images of Excoecaria crenulata.
