Mallotus polycarpus ?;



Trewia nudiflora : Please Confirm ID : SGNP,Mumbai : 231212 : AK-2: A tree seen at SGNP, Mumbai on 9/12/12. Kindly confirm id.

yes it is Mallotus nudiflorus (L.) Kulju & Welzen (Syn. T. nudiflora).

It could be Trewia polycarpa.

I could not find any close up of leaves on searching the net.

I am not sure about the id. Please wait for the plant to flower.

This tree was shown during a group walk at Sanjay Gandhi National Park earlier this month.
Since the pictures on FOI showed leaves that looked a bit different, I put up the pictures for validation.
Unlikely that I will visit that place again on my own.

Mallotus nudiflorus or Trewia nudiflora from Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Mumbai.

Kindly validate.


May be Mallotus polycarpus as per images herein.
