Myrsine semiserrata Wallich (Myrsinaceae) is a common shrub or small tree in temperate Himalaya in Uttarakhand. It is locally known as ‘Gaunta’, and the fruits are considered medicinal.

Shot near Naini Tal, Uttarakhand.


Thanks … for this post.. this tree is not much common, still I have to locate this..

Not Myrsinaceae, is it ?

It may be Myrsine capitellata..


Thank you … But I am little bit confused compared to my earlier posts in this plant. This is a small plant shrubby type dangling from the wall whereas the my earlier posts have big tree and the fruiting is on the whole branchlets.


Looks like Myrsinaceae.. Myrsine spp??


Some species of Ardisia?

I don’t think it matches with any Ardisia sp. !

Rhamnus purpureus Edgew.  ??

Looks close to your images of Myrsine semiserrata at SK897 19 DEC-2017:ID
Images- 4th and 5th are from some other plant.

Looks like Myrsine..

All images from same plant.

Fruits look like M. semiserrata but leaf and stem look different.

Thanks, …, Than may be I did not see them closely.

In that case may be some other species in this genus.

Looks different from existing species of Myrsine as per comparative images herein.


Seems to Myrsine semiserrata (Recorded in Nepal too)

http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=110&taxon_id=121522,


No, it is not.

Pl. see FOC illustration & FOP illustration. As per Flora of China, leaf margin remotely serrulate to middle. Pedicel ca. 2 mm, and as per Flora of Pakistan, leaves lanceolate or elliptic, 5-12 cm long, 1-1.5(-2) cm broad, shortly serrate to subentire and Flowers 3 mm across, white, in dense axillary fascicles; pedicels 1-2.5 mm long.


I tried other options in Ardisia, Embelia and Maesa, but failed.

It is Myrsine semiserrata only (with almost entire leaves)


I guess Myrsine semiserrata Wall. is correct ID
