Seen in Kenya in the Mara Triangle, Masai Mara near the banks of River Mara.

Seems to Croton persimilis


Can we check for Croton dichogamus, the Orange Leaf Croton?
Just a suggestion.

Maybe as per
https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/342743-Croton-dichogamus/browse_photos


I had suggested Croton dichogamus, the Orange Leaf Croton later.

Can you please check?


Any flower or fruit ?


None when I saw them in the first week of July.
Only leaves, many turning orange.

These were on the bank of the Mara river.


OK … !
