Tree for ID – Dandeli – 22022014-Ampajit : 13 posts by 6 authors. 3 images.

Please help me ID this tree.
Location:Dandeli, Karnataka
Date:30-dec-2013
It was a very tall and beautiful tree. These are the only pics i have.
The tree was neither fruiting nor flowering when i took this pic.

Scaevola sp…..at least the leaf morphology reminds that…


Isnt Scaevola a beach plant? This is a full fledged tree and that too a very tall tree.


Scaevola species so far in efi


Scaveola sp


So we can close this thread by finalising that this is one of the Scaevola sp. Thanks all for the help.


I don’t think we can conclude this thread as resolved.

There is no genus by the name of genus Scaveola.
Yes there is a genus by the name of Scaevola, but most species are annual or perennial herbs. A few are shrubs and the common species often planted also S. frutescens now known as S. taccada is a spreading shrub which may reach at the most 3 m in height. This seems to be a tall tree and can’t be a species of Scaevola.
Let us hunt for an appropriate ID. Flowers should help.


Sure … Even my understanding of Scaveola was similar and had never seen a full fledged tree. Unfortunately there is no way i can get the flowers for this as i had taken the pics when i went on trip to Dandeli. However i agree to pursue and lets wait for more comments to see whether we get any further clue.


Looks like Scaevola taccada

NOT SURE  


…, i dont think its a scaevola species. As mentioned earlier, most of the Scaevola species are herbs or shrubs… this is a very tall and large tree.


After seeing the flowers in … photographs from Java I feel … has mixed up the two plants. The first and third photographs may belong to Scaevola taccada, as leaves look very similar to that of … and plant looks shrubby. The tall tree shown in second photograph is also visible in background in third photograph. It may be a different plant. Perhaps that may solve confusion. I hope I am not very wrong.
