Malvaceae week : Pterygota alata Syn. Sterculia alata: Malvaceae week : Pterygota alata Syn. Sterculia alata
Earlier :Sterculiaceae
Buddha's coconut.
Observed in a private bungalow Pune. and also in Rani Bag Mumbai.
Flowers are polygamous. I think in one of my pictures both male and female flowers are visible. 

I have seen only one tree in Delhi University in vegetative condition. 

Nice one we call it "Pagla gach" (mad tree in bengali) because its heterogeneous leaf morphology.. have seen one in Indian Botanic garden 

NA ..... Pagla gachh is a variant... of Pterygota alata... there is one in Kol Bot garden ( several baby trees too and one in the Hort... I am going to upload the one from Hort in a day or two....   the native pterygota alata
is a very tall tree and is deciduous.. the variant Pagla one never looses all its leaves... that's a big difference...
Several native ones are in victoria memorial ... at least a hundred years old... and very tall. without leaves provides a perch for now recovering population of the vultures in winter ... one year we volunteered to count them and their nesting pairs... may be i'll try and find the pictures and upload them....

Submitting an interesting tree and its variant …
Family:              Malvaceae
Subfamily:               Sterculioideae
Genus:                                Pterygota
Species                 1:  Pterygota alata 
                             2: Pterygota alata  var. irregularis
These trees grow very tall, have the typical  sterculoid leaves… and both develop the seed pod that’s called the Boddha’s coconut
#1:  , the regular p. alata  happens to be deciduous….looses all its leaves, being the tallest it provides a look out perch for the vultures…
After some years of dwindling number they had disappeared for a few years… reappearing  to nest in the victoria memorial gardens in Kolkata… and vicinity…
And they used to perch on three pterygota alata trees we have there… we use to go and count through the seacon.. to assure ourselves that they were there to stay…
They are in figure 6 and 7… towards end of spring in April.
#2  : The most interesting Pterygota is the PAGLA gachh… or the mad tree…  so called because None of its leaves match each other, each one is different…
And its not deciduous… you’ll notice in the pictures that 20 percent or so leaves are turning brown… ready to fall… 
These digital pics are from 2007 fig 1, 2) and 2011 (fig 3 and 4) all from the Hort gardens… see the label /Placard has changed… and fig number 5 is from Kolkata Bot G,  beginning of summer each.

Could see the vultures and the Sterculia fruit adopted the shape of vulture.

This is a tree found along road in IIT Bombay, Mumbai, Maharashtra. Its about 12 feet in height. 
This can be Sterculia alata.. though cannot be certain..
Likely to be Sterculia alata.

Pterygota alata from Uttarakhand: May 2014 DSR_4 : 2 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (2).
Pterygota alata (Roxb.) R. Br. (Malvaceae, earlier Sterculiaceae) is a handsom tree with straight bole. Here in Pantnagar (Uttarakhand) we have a solitary tree, obviously planted.
Leaves have started falling from the tree nowadays and meanwhile I was able to locate some of the "Buddha's Coconuts" (fruits of it) on the high branches.
Seed dispersal is aided by wing on seeds and tree is half naked thus foliage do not come in way of blowing seeds.
Thanks ..., I was able to get flower pics of the same tree this year..they are high up..

Shorea robusta, photographed from TDL Herbal garden in Yamunanagar.
Can this be Sterculia alata instead..
Thanks ... for correction.
Your are quite aware that flowers and fruits are important criteria for the identification of any plant. Your photograph has only leaves which leads difficulties for the identification of any plant. However the shape and the structures of leaves I agree with Dr. Nidhan Singh that tree can be Sterculia and the species can be nobilis instead alata.

Please identify this shrub growing near a riparian location in Kannur district of Kerala at an altitude of approximately 350 feet. Fruit like structures are visible.
Pterygota alata 

It is Erythopalum populifolium
I also agree with ... as images are close to images at Pterygota alata (Roxb.) R.Br. rather than those at Erythropalum scandens

Requesting id: Gateway to JOG Falls, Shimoga district, karnataka is Talguppa for southern people. Railway line after conversion got open recently. Five huge trees in fruiting attracted our attention. Looks to be exotic. Requesting id.

I think ... is right.
It is Pterygota alata Syn. Sterculia alata
This is Pterigota alata, commonly known as Budha's coconut. I have seen this tree in Madras Theosophical society campus also.
It is Pterygota alata (Roxb.) R. Brown (Syn: Sterculia alata)- of Sterculiaceae family. It is not an exotic species as they are distributed in our forests they grow as tall as >35m in the evergreen forests.

Looks like Sterculiaceae tree. Please check for Pterigota (P.alata ?).
Please check for Berrya cordifolia as well. The flower like structure looks like the fruits of the tree.

Sterculia alata / Pterygota alata (Buddhas Coconut)

Request identity of this small tree? 
Location: Kandivali (east), Mumbai.
Local name: Narikel, Buddha's coconut, 
Botanical name: Pterygota alata
Thank you for the id. I didn't find it in 'Trees of Mumbai' BNHS 2006. The closest I came to was in 'Trees of Delhi' Penguin 2006 but I was confused when described as "A towering giant of rainforests of NE and WGhats, and one of Delhi's tallest trees though it is stunted here." Nevertheless, its a planted roadside tree but probably will not grow to its full, magnificent size. Worth following this trees over the years...
