Kind request to ID this fruiting plant from the forest fringes near Mudigere, Chikmagalur district.
I am not sure what it is, but just remembered, once … had shared some what similar photographs of the fruits of some clerodendrum sp.
That looks like a pentalocular ovary with single ovule in each
How about Ochna obtusata???
I second … It may be some species of Ochna…
Any chance of Campylospermum serratum (Gaertn.) Bittrich & M.C.E.Amaral ??
Looks different from images at Gomphia serrata
I checked all species listed under Ochnaceae in FoPI, but it looks different.
Fruits of Munronia pinnata
not Ochna, ochna is shrub/ tree not a small herb
Completely different family ! what a confusion.
Munoronia is ok but the species look different, for the leaves are simple here
Most probably it is Turraea pubescence or villosa, as they have simple leaves, reported from W.ghats, not Munronia
fruit looks like that of Munronia, but the leaf is different, for munronia pinnata belongs to Meliaceae, the leaf is pinnate, but here it looks as simple leaf
