Anmod Ghat :: Genus FOR ID :: DVFEB70/103 : 8 posts by 3 authors. 3 images.
Anmod Ghat NH4A descending from Anmod, Karnataka to Mollem, Goa

Date: 23 APR 2011 … Altitude: descends from about 640 m asl to 90 m asl

Genus ID please
Cannot recollect the dimensions; only these photos of leaf and fruit.
Will be glad to get ID to genus level
.


Difficult to guess.
May be Cassine glauca of Celastraceae.
Young leaves appears to have serrate margin.
I have seen many huge trees but cant remember fruits.
**In case of Cassine glauca, fruits are very hard, favorite fruit of giant squirrel.
Fallen fruits usually with a hole (opened by them to eat endosperm)
If we scratch bark, gives characteristic almond or phenolic smell.


efi page on Elaeodendron glaucum (syn: Cassine glauca (Rottb.) Kuntze) 


the fruits of Cassine glauca are very different than this.


I would think this to be Elaeodendron (Cassine in the sense of most users). But I cannot get closer to a species name. The fruit is possibly still young and may be much bigger than that of Elaeodendron glaucum (Cassine glauca).


Thank you very much … for resurfacing this query.
Many thanks to … for taking me closer to genus ID.
The photos are limited and do not show relevant aspects; will take it to be tentatively Elaeodendron.
