Good capture …
I have seen the fruits and tasted it too but never the flowers


Only single posting of this species in efi so far.
Does not match with images of Elaeagnus latifolia at
It must be Elaeagnus conferta Roxb. as there are lot of postings of this in efi.

Please help with the name “guara” in native script – name given for Elaeagnus conferta Roxb. This name is used in some of n-e Indian languages too.

This is again a tricky question …!

Prain and Roxburgh recorded it as GUARA, Voigt none, Piddington as GWARA,
Using the present day practice it will be গুয়ারা or following Piddington গ্বারা  the later having no meaning and very unlikely.

Since this is found in North Bengal (as per Bengal Plants) I am thinking if the name can be derived from GAUR Bengal. Maybe … or … can help.


Many many thanks … I trust your analysis.

Indeed most of the transcribed names are tricky – 1) typo, 2) listing name from one language for another, 3) name known to only a particular region, and so on. But I think it is better we discuss and attempt to thrash OR resolve such ambiguities.

Will wait for validating comments.


Well, … you do find unusual stuff, I am glad.  ANd … you are diligent.

Dr. Kalipada Biswas and Ekkodi Ghosh list it as E. latifolia Linn.

and give bangla name same as : গুয়ারা  what … typed above, and they do mention that it also grows in chattagram area and Kumayun (hills, i guess) and that there is a kumayun name: মীজহাণলা as in mij-hanla.

I trust Ekkodi mahashay and Dr Biswas… they were both at the Royal Bot garden as our Shibpur Bot G was known then ….

Hope this helps


Thank you Didi. I remember SUPARI is also GUA and as per Voigt Areca triandra is BON-GUA; A. gracilis RAM-GUA; Acacia farnesiana = GUA-BABLA.


Thank you very much … for validating the name, and giving it in Bangla script.


We have only E. latifolia which Known as Bon-Jara, Loh-baroi, Mirica-tenga, Kambong (Magh)


Thanks … for these names.

I thought these names Bon-Jara and Mirica-tenga are in Assamese; Loh-baroi and Kambong in some other north-eastern languages.

This tree with straggling branches was seen next to a waterfall in the Tamhini ghat near Pune, MH in Aug 2019.
Requested to please provide ID.

… taking a guess … Elaeagnus conferta.


Thank you … for the ID.

…, mine is a guess; I hope someone, or … validates it.

Yes Definitely Elaeagnus but difficult without flower or fruit !

I now recollect it being called ‘Aamgul’ in Marathi by the local guide, which is Eleagnus conferta

This tree was seen in the forest next to a waterfall in the Tamhini ghat near Pune, MH in Aug 2019.
Is it possible to ID with these limited pics?

really limited


This looks like Elaeagnus again. See the silvery backed leaves,


What are the species and keys as per Flora of Maharashtra?


I think may be Elaeagnus latifolia L. as per discussion at Confusion in Elaeagnus species in Flora of Peninsular India

Elaeagnus conferta in FOI : 5 posts by 2 authors.
Images of Elaeagnus conferta in FOI should be of Elaeagnus latifolia as per details herein and as per discussion at Confusion in Elaeagnus species in Flora of Peninsular India
Pl. correct.

I think … image at Elaeagnus conferta in FOI, still needs to be removed.


I will do so. Still trying to understand this issue properly.


I still feel that flowering image from Manipur is more closer to Elaeagnus latifolia rather than Elaeagnus conferta as per images herein.

Pl. correct.


In fact, this page: Elaeagnus conferta in FOI itself needs to be deleted as fruits can not be relied upon for id.
