Small Tree for id from Assam- NS January 2020::01 : 7 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (5)
In order to resume my activity on the group, I have started searching my database again…
This medium-sized tree was recorded from Biswanath-Chariali District, Assam. I request for identification clues…
Could it be Lonicera sp.?
Please check Hyptianthera striata
Hyptianthera stricta (Roxb. ex Schult.) Wight & Arn. ??
Lasianthus. May be L. tubiflorus (Rubiaceae)
Thanks, … for the id.
To me also appears close to Hyptianthera stricta
Looks different from Spermadictyon suaveolens (syn: Lasianthus tubiflorus Blume)

It is coffee family (Rubiaceae) plant. Please find out using local flora. Is it wild or cultivated?
what is the flower colour?
The only rubiaceae member that comes closer to this concerned species is Hyptianthera stricta (Roxb. ex Schult.) Wight & Arn.
Points to be noted :
Nevertheless, no word above ever claims that this species is Hyptianthera stricta (Roxb. ex Schult.) Wight & Arn.
Thanks, …, for your analysis. You may be right. I tried looking for similar specimen in GBIF and on net, but did not find it.
Please check http://bnh-flora.gov.bd/species-description/?id=2717
This document may help, Sir (…, you too please check) – Pdf
Also attached here are screenshots of “Flora Indica” & “Flora of British India”.
Place : cooch Behar
Can it be Hyptianthera stricta ?
But unable to confirm as I can not see the details of flowers clearly in these images.
I agree with the id, …, attached here is a magnified picture of the flowers (though not clear). Flowers can be four or five merous.
And Bengal Plants or Flora of British India lists one single species.
Detailed close up from … would have helped.
Yes, Sir ji.
