Can this be E. glandulosus?


May be E tuberculatus.


Thank you sir. Identified to be the same by … as well.
Elaeocarpus tuberculatus Roxb.


Thanks, …, But as per Revision of Elaeocarpus (Elaeocarpaceae) Section in South India & Sri Lanka – Jstor : Sue Zmarzty Kew Bulletin Vol. 56, No. 2 (2001), pp. 405-447, there is no such species found in South India.

Revision of Elaeocarpus (Elaeocarpaceae) Section in South India & Sri Lanka – Jstor : Sue Zmarzty Kew Bulletin Vol. 56, No. 2 (2001), pp. 405-447.
Abstract: Elaeocarpus section Elaeocarpus in southern India and Sri Lanka is revised. Nine species are recognised, including three new species (E. hedyosmus Zmarzty, E. variabilis Zmarzty and E. taprobanicus Zmarzty) and one new variety (E. serratus L. var. weibelii Zmarzty). Elaeocarpus hedyosmus Zmarzty sp. nov. is the well-known E. amoenus sensu auctt. redescribed. The original syntypes of E. amoenus Thwaites included three different species, and Meijer’s (1995) lectotypification means that this name must be restricted to a distinct, less well-known species. Elaeocarpus variabilis Zmarzty is the well-known E. glandulosus sensu auctt. (syn. E. oblongus sensu auctt.) redescribed. The name E. glandulosus Wall. ex Merr. must be applied to a northern species, probably E. hygrophilus Kurz, after Merrill’s (1951) validation of the name E. glandulosus Wall. Elaeocarpus subvillosus Arn. is lectotypified. It is common for collections from the Wallich Herbarium to be erroneously cited in descriptions of southern Indian Elaeocarpus. The author’s determinations of this material are included as Appendix 1. Appendix 2 lists other exsiccatae. An index to accepted names and synonymy is given as Appendix 3.

Rudraksha? does it get those wonderfully iridescent blue shelled fruits?


Yes … My understanding is that all Elaeocarpus are known as Rudraksha. Right know the fruits are still green. Will wait to know if there is any colour change, provided the langurs and squirrels, that are abundant, leave some for me to examine..!

Thanks … for the update….I stand updated.


Thanks, … But we have to find out the exact species of this post. For that, you can try the following:
Elaeocarpus serratus var. serratus (Karnataka, Tamilnadu & Kerala; Sri Lanka)
Elaeocarpus serratus var. weibelii (Karnataka & Kerala)
Elaeocarpus variablis Zmarzty
