I had collected the same species form Koraput district in 2004. However, I came across only one tree, probably cultivated and couldn’t be identified. The adivasi communities there consider this as a folk variant of Kendu.
It may be a member of Rutaceae.
Looks like some species of Diospyros. But not sure.
Bark leaf and fruit suggest it as Scolopia crenata not sure because flower is absent may I know the location means district and place of collection (eastern ghats has very vast range of mountains
whether the fruit has any cayx if so it may be Diospyros species I will check
I think Scolopia crenata appears a better possibility.
We took pics only at the fruiting stage. We don’t have flower images.
