E. mooniana (?) observed in Agumbe, Karnataka : 4 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (3)- 1 Mb each. 
E. mooniana observed in Agumbe, Karnataka. Not certain of ID. Keyed through Gamble but not sure of the distinction with E. phillyraeoides. Some reports consider it synonyms and some consider E. phillyraeoides to be E. mooniana var gracilis

Syzygium phillyraeoides. But it should be placed in the genus Eugenia. I am not sure if the combination has already been changed to Eugenia phillyraeoidea
