Capparis divaricata: Came across this throny shrub at the outskirts of Pune (Kondwa).
Bot. name: Capparis divaricata 
- Oh what a beauty.
A new location found I was not knowing that. One of the trees of this species is present in the Morgaon Ganapati complex near Baramati.


Capparis divaricata:
 

Capparaceae for identification 200412MK03: Please help me to identify this capparaceae member. Could this be any Capparis sp.?
Leaf size: 6 x 1.5cm https://docs.google.com/document/d/1KC3TcbFeCY6G5lGQnbXiMXFyPkc6fRJaaJ2tQEE0poo/edit


Adding more pictures of the same plant in different location.
Location: Bommiampatty RF; Salem dist., TN
Altitude: 460 M ASL
Date: 14 Apr 2012
Capparis divaricata, I think.
Are these flowers of Capparis divaricata? The leaf morphology is similar to that of C.divaricata.
Altitude: 500 M ASL
Terrain: Dry scrub hillock
Location: an RF near Salem town of TN
Thank you very much ... sir; but I imagine the leaves are more linear in C.divaricata.
The flowers were taken the previous day (13 Apr 2012) but in a different location of 300 metres away. Time of photography: 02:45 PM
I agree with ... All the images belong to Capparis divaricata. Since it is highly variable species and the leaf shape varies from linear, lanceolate, elliptic-lanceolate (for more details kindly refer Jacob's revision on Capparis )

Capparis divaricata with a red gynophore :  Attachments (1). 6 posts by 5 authors.
I wish to share Capparis divaricata Lam. with an unusual red gynophore.
Very beautiful ... gynophore as well as size of pistil is unique..
Nice picture, ...!
I think the change in color indicates that the flower is pollinated.
In case of Capparis zeylanica the white/creamy flowers turn (entirely) to pink or purple, as we commonly see.

Thank you for the comments,
Yes ..., in the morning between 6-7AM the gynophore is red,
I have picked a twig and put it in a polybag, when it is observed at noon the gynophore turned yellow as per the descriptions.

Thanks ... for your opinion.
I rechecked my pictures of the same species and found that some are with red and some with yellow gynophore. Interesting findings!

Please identify this Capparis sp details of which are as follows:
Date           : 16.06.13                                                             
Location     :Keelakuyilkudi, Madurai
Altitude      :less than 500 ft
Habitat        :wild
Habit           :small tree 
Height         :10 ft
Leaves         :ovate
Flowers       :yellow
Fruits          :not seen

I have revisited the tree. Yet to find the fruits.


Very good find. Never seen such Capparis. Eager to know the ID.
Initially I thought it to be Maerua as per the Key saying: Climbing or straggling shrubs:
Next line says
Sepals in one whorl; stamens 12-20 : Maerua.
Here Sepals appear to be in one whorl but stamens are more than 20 so likely to be Capparis only.
Let us wait for further comments.

Capparis species so far in efi with keys
It looks like Capparis grandis L.f. to me
Thanks for the suggestion that it could be Capparis grandis.
C. divaricata.
Thanks for the id.
I am yet to see fruits in this single tree in this vicinity even though I have visited twice. Could this be a sterile flower? Do all Capparis flowers change colour on getting pollinated? Please clarify.

It is my pleasure to share few images of Capparis divaricata (Capparaceae
