NW-India (Darjeeling, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh), Nepal as per Catalogue of Life;
Common name: Purple Buckthorn • Hindi: Gaunta, Juhish, Kao thalihana, Luhish, Luish
Plz help in ID of the Tree/Shrub species.
Could it be Diospyros? My guess D. kaki or else.
Grows in coniferous forests.
Alt: 2800 m
Boos Forests, Rafiabad (Baramulla), J & K.
Not Diospyros at least. Flowers would help.
I think it is from Myrsinaceae Family and it could be Maesa indica (Roxb.) DC. but need to be check.
It looks like Rhamnus sp.
To me appears close to Rhamnus triquetra (Wall.) Brandis as per comparative images at Rhamnus
I think, Rhamnus purpurea
