ANFEB30 Please identify this shrub/short tree : 5 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (9)
Can it be a Chionanthus sp.?
Date: 26th December 2014
Place: Agumbe, Karnataka
Habit: Shrub/small tree


Chionanthus  species in eFIoraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available)


… identified this as a Rubiaceae member and perhaps Octotropis sp. (not confirmed).


There is one species O. travancorica but Biotik says that it endemic to southern western ghats (Agasthyamalai and Periyar).

Apart from that, I would like to add that this was found as understorey short tree in an evergreen forest.


It looks like Psychotria sp.

The plant mentioned in the following thread is not a member of oleaceae but Rubiaceae for sure.
If we get flowers of the same we shall confirm the same.

This could be Psychotria canarensis provided that it is from Agumbe.
A flowering picture would confirm the same.
