I wish to add one more species to Loganiaceae
Plant name: Strychnos colubrina L.,
Ver.names: Snake wood tree (Eng.); Naagamushti(Tel.)
Family: Loganiaceae

……………….


There are many Strychnos colubrine with different authorship; Scolubrina Bl is S.wallichi;

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Strychnos_colubrina the images have tendrils; presence of tendril is important character; when ii is a old mature tree tendrils grow woody; we had observed some with weak tendrils. It is identified with the help of BSI, B.Suryanaraayana Sir-author of Flora of Nellore district;

I am adding few more images. 


After your comments I have again referred other books available with me; Sorry for the incorrect identification; it indicates the plant as Strychnos minor Dennst.  Syn.  Strychnos lenticellata Hill,  

Tendrils bifid thickened; leaf apex acute; nerve reticulations raised beneath; berry crustaceous. Please make corrections.


Thanks, …, for the final id as Strychnos minor Dennst.
To me also appear closer to this species as per
