Brassaiopsis glomerulata (Blume) Regel ??

Looks different from images at Brassaiopsis glomerulata

Is it Brassaiopsis at the first place??

A similar plant from Araliaceae with similar type of inflorescence was recently identified by you and validated by me.
Pl. check that genus and species.

Is this the one …?

Yes, …  Appears to be some other Aralia species.

Aralia leschenaultii:
Could there be some differences between greenish stem and pinkish stem sp.? Leaf shape and size also looks different.—l/ar/araliaceae/aralia/aralia-leschenaultii

There are four posts at Aralia leschenaultii
Which one do you think is different ?

Floral peduncle is pinkish in efi thread compared to two other posts.

I think that may be a little variation as other aspects seem OK.

Ok …
