Erythrina arborescens (?) fom Uttarakhand_Aug 2015_DSR_22 : 5 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (2)

This tall shrub/ small tree was shot near Joshimath (2200m) by Satish Chandra in August 2015.
To me it looks like Erythrina arborescens Roxb. which is known to occur at this elevation in the Himalaya, however, validation is required by experts.
E. arborescens in Kew-
I have seen this species at few places- Ranikhet, Bhowali, Kali Valley, Ukhimath in Uttarakhand. Often isolated individuals are seen in nature.
If ID is as mentioned here it is another addition to eFI.

Very beautiful pictures …
Not very confident about all the Erythrina Species, only a few which I have seen.

Based on the kew specimen and Osmaston’s reliable flora (1927) I am taking it as E. arborescens.

Please validate the id of this tree, recorded from Gori Valley area, Uttrakhand..
Erythrina arborescence..??

Yes, to me it is E.arborescens. Please see eFI page.
