Acacia with distinctive spiky leaves seen at 1860 metres in Budhi Gandaki valley, Nepal : 8 posts by 6 authors. 3 images.
Acacia plant seen beside Budhi Gandaki near Rana (north of Deng) at about 1860m (6102ft), Nepal-2 – 22032017. The leaves are quite similar to Acacia littorea which I saw in Australia but the flowers are very different. Any help in identifying the plant would be very welcome.

New to me.  Never seen such flowers in Acacia!

… is it some Berberis ?

Berberis Species from me too.

I agree it is a Berberis. Is it Berberis asiatica? I note that there was a post a couple of years ago with images of a similar plant:
Many thanks for correcting me on this.

It is some Berberis species.

Yes. I also agree on Berberis.

To me also it looks close to images at Berberis asiatica Roxb. ex DC. as per comparative species of Berberis in efi so far 


MBNN Fortnight::: Berberidaceae:: Berberis lycium ? Flowers from Chakrata-NS 07 : 4 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (4)
I am sending herewith pics. of inflorescence of Berberis sp. recorded from Chakrata, as flowers and fruits are recorded at different times, this is very easy to loose the track, and I did that..
Please suggest if these flowers belong to Berbers lycium ?

From the leaves, It is unlikely B. lyceum.
