Nice pictures of Radermachera xylocarpa (Bignoniaceae).
Is this tree found in M.P.
I think I saw this fruit on Bandhavgarh Fort but now that area is out of bound for tourists so I can not confirm it.
Yes this tree is found in M.P., locally known as Garud tree.
Its long tuberculated pods are sold in local market as "Garud phalli".
These pods are presumed to repel the snakes so locally kept in houses for this purpose. I am attaching the pic of pods, though its quality is very poor.
Yes Radermachera xylocarpa

tree is about 10-12 meter tall with these pods hanging in summer March April  
Could this be Radermachera xylocarpa? I had posted a similar looking pod from Cumbum west, Tamilnadu, which was identified as Radermachera xylocarpa by ...
Flower matches to Jaimangal on Flowers of India.
I am posting a flower picture for validation.

pls name this plant. i found it very near to my village.
if possible give hindi name as well.
This is Oroxylum indicum (L.) Kurz
Check this link for all local names.
To me it looks more like Stereospermum xylocarpum, syn. Radermachera xylocarpa, Bignoniaceae.
It is confusing without fruit or flowers, but I think the texture of the leaves and bark is distinctive.
Check this link for local names!
http://flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Padri%20Tree.html
This could be of Stereospermum chelonoides.
http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Fragrant%20Padri%20Tree.html
Stereospermum chelonoides has uni-pinnate leaves.. But in this case, its distinctly bi-pinnate, suggesting either Radermachera or Oroxylum.
Based on the bark, being flaking off and NOT smooth, I agree with ... with the ID-
Radermachera xylocarpa (Roxb.) Roxb. ex K.Schum.
Thanks ... for the correction and reasoning. I agree with the id Radermachera xylocarpa.
Agree with ... This is Kharsing [Radermachera xylocarpa]. This could also be confused with Mokha [Schrebera swietenioides].
Some of my photographs of Kharsing are available at these links.
Please also check my first set of photographs at this link {which have wrongly been labelled as Mokha [Schrebera swietenioides]}

What tree is this - growing in the forests of Coorg.
White flowers slighlty offensive smell. Pod long and covered with spines. Thanks in advance
Looks like Radermachera xylocarpa (Bignoniaceae).
Excellent ... - seems bang on! I collected the pods as well and they match the description. It appears to be a tree endemic to the peninsula yet this is the first time I came across it. Beautiful specimen.

Kindly identify this Tree 

Habit: Tree 

Habitat: Wild, Dry deciduous forest, an escape..? 

Sighting: Chikmagalur, Karnataka, about 1200 msl 

Date: 08-05-2016 


This is Varas [Heterophragma quadriloculare]. Please check the archives of this group for my photographs of this. Please also check this link
I was hesitating between Heterphragma quadriloculare and Radermachera xylocarpa.
Heterophragma tends to flower when the tree is in leaf, whereas Radermachera flowers when the tree is leafless. The latter also flowers later in the season.
Wondering what made you decide, ...?
Varas [Heterophragma quadriloclare] flowers when the tree is in leaf  as seen in my photographs [attached below]
Kharsing [Radermachera xylocarpa] typically flowers when totally leafless as seen at these links.
From my notes over the last few years Varas generally flowers between January and March with new leaves sprouting around July to August, whereas Kharsing flowers between March to May.

Thanks ... on your serious thoughts.
Yes more possibility that it is Radermachera xylocarpa

A 'Nectar Thief' : 12 posts by 7 authors. Attachments (4)
Photographed at my farm at Shahapur [near Bombay] – a Purple Sunbird [Cinnyris asiaticus] ‘thieving nectar’ from the flowers of Radermachera xylocarpa [Kharsing].
Flowers pollinated by sunbirds are usually red in colour and tubular in shape eg. the Bonfire tree [Firmiana colorata]. As the bird drinks nectar, pollen rubs off onto its beak and head and is then transported to pollinate the next flower it visits.
White flowers are generally pollinated by insects [flies, bees, moths] and bats.
‘Mutualism’ is a symbiosis in which both partners benefit- ie. the bird gets a nectar meal as a reward for assisting in pollination of the flowers.
Hence as seen in the photographs here, the sunbird is indulging in ‘nectar thieving’ by stealing nectar through holes it has made in the corollas of the flowers.

Beautiful capture and interesting info.
By the way Radermachera xylocarpa seems to be a little uncommon tree. One sole member is seen in Pune city on Pune University to Aundh road.
Earlier I had thought it to be Heterophragma quadriloculare.(Waras)
Though both are from Bignoniaceae family.There is a small difference.
The R. Xylocarpa flowers have a distinct yellow colour in their funnels with fairly pure white colour of the flowers as against H. quadrloculare. Also the fruits differ....Have yet to see the KHARSHING or wild bull's horn.

Attaching my pictures. Attachments (2) 
Great pictures there! Does R. xylocarpa fruit readily in your area?

Thanks for your comments. Kharsing is a fairly common tree in my area, but on point of fact have observed it flowering for the first time.This may be because they are not too many really large tree around- presumably the villagers may have cut them down for whatever reason.
This tree being on my property is protected. Incidently there were 2 pods on the tree [what ... has labelled 'Wild Bull's Horns]. Am sending you a photograph of the same. Attachments (1)

''the sunbird is indulging in 'nectar thieving' by stealing nectar through holes"- an interesting observation- I have not observed or try to observe such a thing before.

Good observation BUT sun birds do that very often in Canna flowers.... as the Canna flowers have deep throats the small sun birds cannot reach the right way even with thier long beaks....hence they adopt the short-circuit way and use thier sharp tipped beaks and make holes into the soft flowers at the  base of the Flowers just above the ovary and sip up the nectar.
Curious just check any Canna flowers in your garden or the neighbours you will find holes....most of the time.   
Here is only a bit of inf. about this tree at link: http://www.cababstractsplus.org/google/abstract.asp?AcNo=20043108045
Some extracts from Wikipedia link:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radermachera
Radermachera is a genus of 15-16 species of flowering plants in the family Bignoniaceae, native to southeastern Asia. They are evergreen trees reaching 5-40 m tall, with bipinnate or tripinnate leaves, and panicles of large bell-shaped, white, pink, pale purple or yellow flowers 5-7 cm diameter.
The genus is named after Jacob Cornelis Matthieu Radermacher, the 18th century Dutch naturalist who cataloged much of the flora of Java and Sumatra.
For last three years I am observing this tree(Radermachera xylocarpa) flowering and the season is quite long from Late Feb. Upto May sometimes. Even at present the tree is in full bloom .....with not a single leaf visible as against Heterophragma quadriloculare.(Waras) on which lot of foliage is observed along with flowers. The bark of (Radermachera xylocarpa) is more yellowish. So far I don't remember observing any fruit(Sheng/?shing) on it ...will certainly try to observe this year.
Just to support your observation, I am sharing a photo I took this morning from my balcony (at quite a distance) which I think demonstrates exactly what you are saying. In this case, it looks like that the sunbird has pierced the base of the flower because of the upright position of the flower, preventing the bird from 'dipping in' from top. Attachments (1)
I am too attaching a similar photo of a Purple sunbird demonstrating how it reaches (steals) for the nectar from tubular flowers like Ipomea....In the other image, you can also see the insertion made at the base of the flower...... 
I think this has great evolutionary significance, because the sunbirds by doing this, avoids the payment of pollination services in exchange of the nectar reward.....so such plants might sure, some day(??), would evovle to fix this :)) Attachments (2)
Your photos are such a delight. Hope to see more on Indiantreepix in future.
