Requesting to please validate the ID (Avicennia officinalis) of this mangrove captured in a small village near the Konkan coast, Devgad, Maharashtra in May 2014.
Very nice ! I got last week 
Excellent photos.
Thank you ... I was very happy with this trip as I could see 8-9 mangrove species from close quarters.

Member of Acanthaceae ... also placed in Avicenniaceae OR Verbenaceae
Seems fine to me, except that Jacquin is the author of A. tomentosa, hence ideally it should be Avicennia tomentosa Jacq. 
Many thanks ... for digging into Avicennia tomentosa.
Here are some of my observations:
unaccepted: Avicennia tomentosa Willd.
accepted : Avicennia officinalis L.
World Register of Marine Species at http://www.marinespecies.org/aphia.php?p=taxdetails&id=235132
unaccepted: Avicennia tomentosa Jacq.
accepted : Avicennia germinans (L.) Stearn
World Register of Marine Species at http://www.marinespecies.org/aphia.php?p=taxdetails&id=235126
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
... at other places
Avicennia tomentosa Willd.
FAO http://www.fao.org/forestry/mangrove/13129/en/
Avicennia germinans L. has no association with Avicennia tomentosa Jacq
Atlas of Florida Vascular Plants ... http://florida.plantatlas.usf.edu/Plant.aspx?id=736
I think for fixing correct names we should rely on Kew Plant List, GRIN and where needed IPNI. THe other websites will only confuse us.
    Unaccepted in not a proper word. We should use synonym.
    Avicennia tomentosa Willd., has perhaps never been published (as per IPNI and KEW List, both reliable). The synonym for Avicennia officinalis L. is Avicennia officinalis f. tomentosa Kuntze 
    Avicennia tomentosa Jacq. is a totally distinct species, now considered as synonym of Avicennia germinans (L.) L.
... the words "unaccepted" and "accepted" are used only for sake of pursuing discussion ... not part of nomenclatural syntax.
Many thanks ... for sorting Avicennia tomentosa.
