Any idea about the family or genus pl. ?


I think you have posted similar plant in another thread. Can you recall the Id ?


Xylosma sp.


Xylosma controversa Clos

Celtis australis L.: 10 images.

Location: Ranibari, Kathmandu
Date: 5 April 2021
Elevation: 1370 m.
Habitat : Wild
Nepali Name : खरी Kharee


I think fruits and their arrangement, look different as per images at WikipediaEncyclopedia of Life and bgflora


It was labelled !


Once again I fail, Sir, and yes, all Celtis search displays solitary fruit!

Alternate leaf with serrate margin … can it be any Ilex?

Please, forget Ilex, better try Trema. Pic “DSC_0743” suggests it could be a Trema.


Does not seem to match with both as per Ilex or Trema


Extremely sorry, SIr, didn’t notice the trunk (DSC_0752) is armed. It cancels any chance of Trema.

Now, which Celtis does have an armed trunk? That I do not know.

Flora of Nepal lists 3 species – http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=110&taxon_id=105995. Of those 3 species Celtis australis L. perhaps would be C. australis auct. non L. ….. please check –
  1. http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=5&taxon_id=220002510
  2. POWO
KEW doesn’t think Celtis australis L. is distributed in Nepal or India – POWO
This much I could do !!!


Can it be ripe state of link ? @efi thread


I think you are right as per images at Xylosma controversa


Yes …
