MS Aug.,2017/03 Aralia sp. for Id. : 12 posts by 3 authors. 4 correct images.

Location : Aizawl, Mizoram
Altitude : ca 920 m.
Date : 13-08-2017
Habit : Shrub or small tree, armed with prickles.
Habitat : Wild

Is the photograph (1) is from the same tree/ shrub ? Looks different. 

Please check for Aralia elata  : Also check for the variety.

Is it occurs in NE India ?

I am only suggesting the ID. Pl check the flora of North East and relevant floras for its  previous records.

The first photo (Aralia 1) is of Rubus sp

My doubt has been clarified

Pl. check comparative images at /species/a—l/ar/araliaceae

Could not find a match here too.

Aralia thomsonii Seem. ex C.B.Clarke ?? And the first image looks Rubus rosifolius.

What are the species reported from your area?
May I request you to pl. send high resolution images. to check the details.
Some possibility is there for Aralia thomsonii (as suggested by …) as per GBIF- Specimen 1 Specimen 2
Leaves appear quite velvety in the specimens. 

Aralia armata, A.foliosa var. sikkimensis & A.thomsonii are recorded in Mizoram.

2 high resolution images attached

Yes, I think matches with Aralia thomsonii (as suggested by …) as per GBIF- Specimen 1 Specimen 2
