This small tree was shot from a roadside cliff in the Gori valley area, only the fruits were recorded…
this made me doubt the id even at the family level.. please help to id..


This does not seem to belong to Euphorbiaceae. The ovary or young fruits do not seem show any indication of tricarpellary nature. Furether the flowers seem to possess prominent petals inside the calyx


Please check for Eurya acuminata (Theaceae).


Thanks … for this id suggestion, which seems correct to me…


Yes it is possible that the tree belongs to Theaceae. If you can examine the live flowers, please examine this possibility.

A reply from another thread:

Hello everyone thanks for assisting in Id, PLEASE NOTE ;-  all images belongs to the same plant .


I guess Image 1 and 4 is Eurya acuminata and image 2 and 3 is different plant.

Looks different from images at Eurya acuminata
Pl. check or other species of Eurya


Once check it Eurya cerasifolia  


Yes, this is similar to E. cerasifolia described from Nepal. 


I spent around two hours looking at our posts, details at our site and net.
Neither BSI Flora of India nor efloras links are opening.
Only the following is opening:
Forest Plants of Eastern India By Amal Bhusan Chaudhuri (1993- Description & Keys- Eurya acuminata, Eurya cavinervis, Eurya cerasifolia
As per this, last three images in your post should be of Eurya acuminata due to serrulate leaves and flowers in bunches of 5.

Habit : Small evergreen tree
Habitat : Wild


Eurya species in eFloraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ Biotik/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available on net)


Eurya japonica


As per BSI Flora of India with details & keys (Volume 3- 1993), only following species are found in Mizoram:
Pl. also check with details at efi pages at Eurya acuminata & Eurya nitida


I think more closer to images at Eurya nitida


May even be Eurya acuminata
But difficult to say with these two low resolution images.

As per this, your post should be of Eurya acuminata due to serrulate leaves and flowers in bunches of 5.
Also specimens of Eurya cavinervis at GBIF look different.


Thank you …! However, some characteristics looks like matching to the both sp. according to the ACFPN.
