My Pending Identifications: Chakrata-Pistacia:: NS MARCH 03 : 4 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (6).

This was a tree in fruits, shot again from Chakrata.. the tree is often covered with galls also..

I think this can be a Pistacia sp. ..can this be P. chinesis


Yes to me it is Pistacia chinensis subsp. integerrima (J. L. Stewart ex Brandis) Rech. f.

The insect galls are medicinally very important.


Thank you very much … for confirmation and detailed nomenclature…

This larger tree was growing next to the other tree (which we are suspecting to be Toona serrata).
The young foliage on this tree is also yellow/red with compound leaves. The bark is different and so are the leaf margins. The chandelier like structures have red berries. There are no dried fruit clusters on the tree. Do we know what this is? Another Toon sp.? Please advise.

Toona species in eFIoraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available)  


yes i also thought that it was toona ciliata, i captured some photos also


may be Pistacia integrima


Thank you … It does look like Pistacio integerrima. While photographing I had asked a local person about that tree and he had said that the tree was the only specimen at this altitude and was called ‘Kadain’ in the local dialect. I am attaching a screen shot from the HP govt. site which gives botanical and local names of plants and entry serial 7 shows Kakrain which is close to what the man said.

I will try and visit the tree tomorrow and record changes if any and report here.

Please id this.
Medium sized tree with roundish canopy.
Leaves pinnate like in Toona sp.
-Was growing in association with Pinus on dry slope.


This is Pistacia sp. Anacardiaceae


Three species are known in India and differentiated as follows:

Leaf rachis winged…………………………………………..P.atlantica ssp. cabulica
Leaf rachis not winged………………….
           Leaflets ovate or ovate – oblong ………………P.khinjuk
           Leaflets lanceolate………………………………….P. chinensis ssp. integerrima

Based on Flora of India 5:481-485. 2000.


Leaflets are lanceolate, 5-6 pair, to 20 X 2.5-4 cm, nerves 20-25 pairs, long acuminate, entire, base atanuate.

May i it as P. khinjuk..? (following description in Fl. Garhwal. Pp. 371).


I think this is Pistacia integerrima J. L. Stewart as leaflets are more as per keys at Flora of Pakistan

I clicked these pictures in Kasauli (Himachal Pradesh). The Great Barbet was relishing the fruit. Please help me to identify this tree.


Not much familier with himalayan flora. But, i guess it could be a species of Rhus, most probably Rhus succedanea of Mango family. Pl check description matches perfectly.


Reply from another thread:

Photographs of Toxicodendron succedaneum appears more like  that of Pistacia and edible to birds. Toxicodendron species are  poisonous.


Pistacia chinensis subsp. integerrima (J.L.Stewart) Rech.fil.


Yes, I agree

I asked for a tree id last month. I clicked the picture again -close up, it looks like Tun or toona ciliata or known as mahagony. the fruit
is exactly the same of Tun. Am I right?


It would be sps of Shinus – Anacardiaceae
