Which Loranthaceae??

As per comparative images at Loranthaceae, fruits appears close to Macrosolen species.

Only one Macrosolen seems to be listed in Nepal which does not look like matching, viz. elevation, phenology and net  images!

OK. Than pl. check out others

Actually,  I had already checked all sp at ACFPoN!

Does it match with Dendrophthoe pentandra (L.) Miq. ??
Elevation does not match !

Taxillus umbellifer (Schult.) Danser !

Who gave the id ? May be. I am not sure after going through High resolution specimen  GBIF

One of Loranthaceae expert from Nepal !

Ficus for ID from Baijnath, Uttarakhand-GSMAY2016/18 : 4 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (2)
Please help with the ID of this Ficus species photographed from Baijnath, Uttarakhand on April 16, 2012.

2nd image is beautiful.

It has to be confirmed that whether it is Ficus or not. To me it seems that over the tree in picture some Loranthaceae member is growing and the structures appearing as hypanthodia may be fruits.

Yes …, I hope your Namesake and … made it clear that it was an epiphytic growing on what looks like Rosaceous (perhaps Pyrus) tree. The fruits perhaps belong to Taxillus vestitus. … suggested Succurula elata, but based on our experience where our (mine and …) upload identified Succurula parasitica finally turned out Taxillus vestitus, this may be the same. The fruit shape and colour resembles.

Appears more closer to Taxillus umbellifer rather than Taxillus vestitus as per images and details herein.

I also have these identified as Taxillus vestitus, but flowers and inflorescence does not match with Taxillus at all.

I could not follow you.

In my folder also these are identified as Taxillus vestitus, but after having found real T. vestitus, above does not match with two links I have given.

…: Which Loranthaceae is this ?

Pl. check with Taxillus umbellifer (Schult. f.) Danser or related species.

The earlier post on fruiting was on January SK 2422 091 February 2020 !
Do you think it is same ?

Yes, it appears to be the same.
Flora of China says Fl. Aug., but for Taxillus vestitus (Wallich) Danser it says Fl. and fr. Jul-Nov. (in view range of Taxillus umbellifer (J. H. Schultes) Danser should also be much wider).
Images at SK 2422 091 February 2020 look like of matured fruit, while those posted appear to be of immature fruits.
Pl. check flowering and fruiting period in other resources.

Thank you …! Taxillus umbellifer (Schult. & Schult.f.) Danser
