Fabaceae (Faboideae) Fortnight :: Tree for id :: Chakrata :: NS OCT 140/140- Concluding Post : 4 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (5)
Please suggest if this tree can be identified, without flowers, I am unsure that this belongs to Faboideae only..
Help required for id..
With this I conclude my Fabaceae Fortnight, thanks for giving me extra slot !!
Dalbergia (lanceolaria or panniculata)
It’s Dalbergia lanceolaria, not var. paniculata,
What is the difference you see here to make it lanceolaria and not paniculata?
Leaflets 9-13, oblong-obovate, pod short, 1-2 seeded …….paniculata
Tree for ID : Nasik : 30MAR21 : AK-14:
Tree seen with tiny flowers and dried pods.
Probably growing wild.
Adding the original images one by one, in case you would like to see the details.
Same doubts as expressed by … Clear pictures are needed.
I think more closer to images at Dalbergia lanceolaria
I will try taking more pictures when I visit the place.
Yes, to me too it is Dalbergia paniculata
May I request to check these the following keys as I am unable to decipher from submitted details:
D. lanceolaria subsp. lanceolaria has 11-17 leaflets not turning black when dry, and pink flowers, upper two calyx teeth obtuse lower three acute; whereas D. lanceolaria subsp. paniculata has 9-13 leaflets turning black when dry, and white flowers, all five calyx teeth acute.
Flower colour in both is variable, otherwise the keys seem correct. You are right details are not seen in these images.
My guess is based on the overall look of the tree from field experience.
