Seem to agree with you on Macropanax sp


MS,Nov.,2021/24 Tree for id: 1 very high res. image.

Leaf? Aralaceae ??

Leaf images would help.

Any other image? What are the Brassaiopsis keys?

Only Brassaiopsis glomerulata is recorded in Mizoram

2 images- 1 very high res.

I think Brassaiopsis glomerulata as per POWO specimens- onetwo and GBIF specimens- onetwothree and description in Flora of China and FoC illustration

On further checking, it appears more closer to Macropanax dispermus (Blume) Kuntze as per keys provided by you and as per POWO specimens- onetwo and FoC illustration and Flora of China description and Plant illustration.

Panax assamicus R.N.Banerjee ??

I think it is more likely to be the Panax pseudoginseng Wall. due to long petiolules as per GBIF specimens (one and two)

Maybe …. Leaf margins look different.

Yes, leaf margins seem variable/ different in the two specimens.

So need to explore more ?

No harm in doing that.
Check other GBIF specimens.

Checked these already !
