MS March, 2020/15 Ligustrum compactum ? for ID/confirmation : 5 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (3) – 1 mb each.

Location : Hmuifang, Mizoram

Altitude : ca. 1,400 m

Habit : Shrub or tree
Habitat : Wild

Ligustrum ?


What are the species reported in your area ?

Ligustrum compactum, L.confusum and L.robustum are recorded in Mizoram.

I think it may come out to be Ligustrum robustum (Roxb.) Blume


On further scrutiny, I will go for Ligustrum confusum Decne.

I further examined it in the light of details in Flora of China:

Shrubs or small trees to 8 m. Branchlets terete, puberulent when young, glabrescent. Petiole 4-5(-10) mm, glabrous or puberulent; leaf blade ovate to elliptic, sometimes lanceolate, 2.5-7(-10) × 1.3-3(-5) cm, thin leathery, glabrous or sometimes pubescent near base of midrib adaxially, base cuneate to broadly cuneate or rounded, apex acuminate or acute; primary veins 4-6 on each side of midrib. Panicles terminal, 4-11 × 2-8 cm; rachis puberulent to pubescent. Flowers subsessile. Calyx 1-1.5 mm, glabrous. Corolla 4-5 mm; tube ca. as long as lobes. Stamens not exceeding corolla lobes; anthers 1-1.5 mm. Fruit black or black-brown, subglobose to obovoid, 6-11 mm in diam.
Thickets near gullies; 800-2100 m. Xizang, Yunnan [Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Myanmar, Nepal, Sikkim, Vietnam]

Flora of China illustration

Shrubs or small trees to 12 m, semievergreen. Branchlets terete, pubescent when young, glabrescent or velutinous. Petiole 0.5-2.5 cm, glabrous, puberulent or velutinous; leaf blade elliptic-lanceolate to ovate-elliptic, 5-15 × (2-)3-6(-8) cm, papery, glabrescent, sometimes midrib only puberulent adaxially, or velutinous, base rounded to cuneate, apex acute to long acuminate; primary veins (6-)9-15 on each side of midrib, slightly prominent. Panicles usually terminal, 7-20 × 7-16(-24) cm; rachis angular, particularly in fruit. Flowers subsessile. Calyx 1-1.5 mm. Corolla 3.5-5 mm; tube ca. as long as lobes. Stamens reaching apex of corolla lobes; anthers 1-2.5 mm. Fruit blue-black or black, ellipsoid or subglobose, 7-10 × 4-6 mm, usually slightly curved.
Valleys; 600-3400 m. Hubei, Sichuan, Xizang, Yunnan [India, Nepal]
As apex long acuminate, leaves and panicles comparatively large, rachis angular, fruits blue-black and slightly curved, I feel it may be Ligustrum compactum (Wallich ex G. Don) J. D. Hooker & Thomson ex Brandis

Thank you.
Ligustrum confusum Decne. ??

I think seems to match with description in Flora of China and FOC illustration (except it say small tree upto 8 m).
Also see GBIF  POWO

Yes …, it is a tall tree. Nepali Names : कनिके फूल Kanike Phool  / बर्दन्ती Bardantee


On further scrutiny and going through descriptions in Flora of China as also discussed in MS March, 2020/15 Ligustrum compactum ? for ID/confirmation, it should be Ligustrum compactum due to large leaves, long acuminate apex and more no. of lateral veins along with flower shape being different from those at SK 2670 16 July 2020


Thank you … I guess the correct ID!

Will it be further helpful to correctly validate the sp. ?

Ligustrum indicum (Lour.) Merr. : 10 posts by 3 authors. 7 images- 5 to 7 mb each.


Location: Phulchoki, Lalitpur, Nepal

Date: 20 June  2020

Altitude: 2202 m.

Habitat : Wild
POWO and GBIF giving accepted name asLigustrum sinense var. sinense !

To me appears close to Ligustrum confusum Decne. as per comparative images at Ligustrum
Flora of China gives the following keys:
27 (25) Leaf blade glabrous or occasionally pubescent only along midrib adaxially, ovate to elliptic; pedicel 0-1 mm 16 Ligustrum confusum
+ Leaf blade ± hairy, if glabrous, then blade lanceolate and inflorescences axillary or terminal; pedicel 1-5 mm 17 Ligustrum sinense

Beautiful photographs. For me the ID is correct.


Thank you … It could be correct since I have posted earlier same sp. from little higher elevation from Phulchoki !

On further scrutiny and going through descriptions in Flora of China as also discussed in MS March, 2020/15 Ligustrum compactum ? for ID/confirmation, it should be Ligustrum compactum due to large lanceolate leaves, long acuminate apex and more no. of lateral veins along with flower shape being different from those at SK 2670 16 July 2020

I think Ligustrum sp.


Pl. check comparative images at Ligustrum


Agreed, Ligustrum sp.


For me … ID is correct. Could be L.lucidum or L.japonicum


I guess this too Ligustrum lucidum W. T. Aiton.

On further scrutiny and going through descriptions in Flora of China as also discussed in MS March, 2020/15 Ligustrum compactum ? for ID/confirmation, it should be Ligustrum compactum due to large lanceolate leaves, long acuminate apex and more no. of lateral veins and being wild.

Adding some images shot at Kathmandu, Nepal on 22 January 2017 which I guess

is same plant . However, Ligustrum perrottetii is not listed in Nepal so my guess is Ligustrum lucidum W.T.Aiton (accepted name) as per the links I have sent in the earlier mail.
Waiting for the validation.

Any idea about the family ?
