The climbing habit points to Bridelia stipularis.


Seems to Bridelia glauca


I beg to differ. This is not Bridelia glauca but B. stipularis as pointed out by me.


Climbing formation when they have support other plants or when haven’t support other plants seems like small bush with hanging branches, Stupules persistent even fruits fallen ……..Bridelia stipularis

Trees, fruiting will appear from 3 meters(Small tree) up to 15 meters, stipules deciduous……. Bridelia glauca
So above posted plant is Bridelia glauca because plant is small tree and clear woody straight branches, branches with fruits without stipules …..with these characters leaves also matched with Bridelia glauca.

For the detailed analysis, especially pointing out that this plant is arborescent. In such case please also consider Bridelia sikkimensis, which seems more appropriate, because of the apparent full glabrescence.
I am delighted that young Scientists like you are  coming forward with your in depth knowledge and sharp observations.


You’re always welcome …,

might be B.sikkimensis also, you have much experience with Euphorbiaceae,
Just I have compared it with stipularis.
