(Mixed thread):
I do not know where to attach these pics, with my previous post or this one…

These pics were recorded in August 2013 from Chakrata area.. I have named the thumbnails as Taxillus vestitus, hope they help to reach to any conclusion (I hope, they will not increase confusion).. these were shot from approximately same location as the earlier pics in this mail..


It looks me Scurula elata


A reply from …, who is an expert on this family: “Pl. wait”


Seems to match with Scurrula elata if id at FOI is correct.

Again, from the Phulchowki area I have another one I am not able to ID. I believe it is an Aeschynanthus. It was growing on old degraded Quercus semecarpifolia trees.
