Bot. name: Cynometra iripa
Family: Caesalpiniaceae
Habitat: Wild (Mangrove associate)
Plant Habit: Tree

Oh... its really very nice and good information,, i had only known of its presence in the coastal area,,, thanks for confirmation.. its very rare plant i guess.
When I was checking the known species from the flora of Maharashtra this name struck my mind and was wondering about it.

Kindly identify this tree from Thailand.

What can be this tree with brain like fruits? 

Cynometra ramiflora

Thanks, ..., Both species Cynometra iripa and Cynometra ramiflora L. look quite similar, but as per ILDIS, only Cynometra iripa is found in Thailand.
