Great way of presentation.

Is the id Ok as Berberis chitria ?

Berberis aristata DC. ??

Thank you … I am not familiar with this genus.
Hope there will be some comment(s).

I just checked this picture at my photostream at flickr.
It is identified as Berberis chitria Buch.-Ham. ex Lindl. by … in this post itself at eFI.

Yes, may be. Please cross check with SK1051 30MAR-2018

Thanks …
I saw your post. Some pictures in the first set of attached pictures do resemble what I have in this post of mine.
I have two posts of Berberis aristata:
 2) … ¿ Berberis species ? from Shimla
… and they do not look like what I have in this post of mine.
Either above posts need re-validation OR Berberis in this post needs re-validation (of not being Berberis chitria).
Hope someone helps. I am not good at this 🙁

OK … Hope we get some feedback from experts.

It looks close to Berberis koehneana C.K.Schneid.

Could not find a match as per comparative images at Berberis.

It could be B. koehneana but need to check the flowers and fruits to confirm the ID.
