Callistemon lanceolatus (Cultivated) ?

3 posts by 2 authors.
Further to my discussion in the other thread I am uploading specimens that could be placed in Callistemon lanceolatus (Sm.) Sweet or C. citrinus (Curtis) skeels after we know the differences between the two.
I tried to find the differences myself on net, but could not locate them.

Callistemon- some species in India & eFI
Looks like C. rigidus?
A reply from another thread from ...:
"Dear friends
Most of us know through Floras and common books Callistemon lanceolatus DC. as the commonest species of Callistemon cultivated in many parts of India. As it turned out for last 5 to six decades this was considered as synonym of C. citrinus (Curtis) Stapf.
As has been clearly specified in Trees of Delhi (Pradip Krishen) none of the specimens grown in Delhi belong to C. citrinus. They actually belong to C. viminalis (Soland. ex Gaertn.) Cheel., the two similarly looking species are distinguished as under: 
C. viminalis: Tree with drooping slender branches; leaves linear-lanceolate, up to 10 cm long and 4-7 mm broad; flowers scarlet--red in up to 7 cm long dense spikes; filaments united at base; fruits not persisting on old wood.
C. citrinus: Shrub or tree with short arching branches; leaves broadly lanceolate, rigid, up to 7 cm long, 6-12 mm broad; flowers scarlet red in up to 10 cm long spike; filaments free at base; fruits persisting on 2--3 year old branches.
C. viminalis is aptly represented in our website through uploads of Balkar ji , Rathinasabapathy ji and several posts of Bimal ji I am uploading mine from Delhi here. 
Now there is a big catch. It has now been established (both on The Plant List and GRIN) that C. lanceolatus (Sm.) Sweet and C. citrinus (Curtis) skeels are two distinct species and not synonymous (although C. lanceolatus DC. a synonym of latter). It would as such be interesting to know the differences between the two to be able to place our specimens properly. Perhaps some member can help.
I also have feeling that C. rigidus of Flowers of India and one uploaded by Aarti ji from Lalbagh may actually be one of these two species, as C. rigidus has much narrower almost linear lobes and capsules with almost close mouth where as in both above uploads leaves are broader almost broadly lanceolate with capsules with clearly open mouths.
Perhaps once differences between C. lanceolatus and C. citrinus as understood now, are know, we can place our specimens correctly. "
It is not P. viminalis
It could be C. lanceolatus or C. citrinus. These were earlier treated as one species, but now distinct. We have to know differences between two to decide your plant. I had written it clearly in my mail.

Posted earlier.
Cultivated, small tree.
Check anthers in young spikes
If red it could be C. citrinus/ lanceolatus
If yellow C. polandii
Thanks for the tips.
I will keep in mind when I revisit the place and try to get close up pictures.
Differences between Callistemon lanceolatus and Callisatemon viminalis
Kindly give your valuable suggestions on the differences compiles from Trees of Delhi by Pradip Krishan ji, discussion by Dr. Gurcharan Singh Ji at efloraofindia and booklet on Callistemons, Kunzeas and Melaleucas by Australian Plant Society North Shore Group.

If you can have a look at posts in efi site and suggest changes, if any, it will be nice. 
OK, Sir
I have gone through efi pages for the differences between these two species.
