Dalbergia sissoides ?;
A friend of mine asked me to identify this Dalbergia species. Please help me to identify this.
Date: 17 July 2008
Location: en route Ooty, Nilgiris
Altitude: c. 1600 m
Habitat: wild (photographed from road)
This looks like Dalbergia lanceolaria var. paniculata locally called Phanshi. Please check this site for my photographs of D.lanceolaria var. lanceolaria [Dandus].
I am quite sure the tree is not Dalbergia lanceolaria. The leaves are quite distinct. I have the tree in Mysore and have seen in Chennai also.
It would have been helpful to have seen the tree in toto, and its bark canopy/ overall shape…
It is a species of Dalbergia for sure.
Leaves are different in Ailanthus spp.
A species of Dalbergia only.
Can it be Dalbergia sissoides Wight & Arn. as per images herein
