Seen this medium size tree with reddish coloured fruits at kali Tiger Reserve, North Karnataka.
Nothopegia sp. [Anacardiaceae].
Thanks a lot … for the lead.. It could be Nothopegia racemosa..
I am confused between Nothopegia beddomei (most of our observations in efi so far) & Nothopegia racemosa
Yes! Nothopegia racemosa !
Two species are quite close. I will go with Nothopegia beddomei as per timing of other observations here as well as timings for two species as per book link in FoPI.
