Plants from Northeast Tour 2017- Rosaceae Shrub for id- Shillong : 6 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (5)
Please suggest id for this Rubus? recorded from Shillong Meghalaya, in June 2017, flowers are invariably without petals, fruits were not observed at that time..

Can it be Rubus paniculatus?

Most likely to be Rubus assamensis. These are without petals. Other characters that are observable seem to suggest it.

Thanks a lot …, yes, it matches with Rubus assamensis, I hope it is new addition to eFI..


MS,May, 2022/13 Lonicera sp. ? for id.: 1 very high res. images.
Location : Lurh tlang,.  Mizoram

Altitude : ca.1,650 m.
Date : 03-10-2018
Habit : Climbing shrub
Habitat : Wild

This looks like Rubus paniculatus Sm.

Looks like Rubus sp…

Leaves doesn’t matched to R. paniculatus indeed looks like R. pedunclosus

Fruit color OK ?

Yes sir mature fruits turned black.. but the number of berries in the ettario seems few ….

By the way does it have distribution in Mizoram ??

I think more closer to images and details at Rubus assamensis
