Schrebera swietenoides
Family :Oleaceae.
Sharing some pictures shot today (19.4.10) evening from Vetal Tekdi Pune.
Earlier I had posted the dried fruits of it.
The old fallen flowers have some similarity to Parijatak flowers. (Nyctanthus arbortrystis)

Very interesting. Is this a common tree? Are flowers fragrant? Is it from tropical regions, or can it take some frost?
I'd be interested in getting some seed of this if it is available, and try it in Florida, USA.
Schrebera alata, native to South Africa, is uncommonly grown but successful in California and Florida, USA. It has sweetly-fragrant flowers:

I think it is an endangered species with hardly few trees spotted in my area of observation. The above tree has been observed by me for last one year but it is lone and hasn't produced any fruits though the flowering is profuse.
I do not want to impact an endangered species.

Please help me in identifying this small tree found in the deciduous forests. Could this be a Meliaceae?
Location: Mudumalai TR, Nilgiris, TN

I think it is Schrebera swietenioides with immature fruit,
Looks like Schrebera swietenioides of Oleaceae family
It does looks like S.swietenioides.
A large tree observed this Sunday (27.4.09) on Vetal Tekdi. For ID
Important morphological features : compound leaves with 9 leaflets.
White flowers in terminal inflorescences. bark fainter yellow gray.

nice picture of Schrebera swietenioides (Oleaceae). The fruits of this Red Listed plant are medicinal and traded in the name of 'Ganti phal' (the dehisced fruit looks like a bell).

I saw few of these trees again without any leaves. Only fruits were observed.
Two compartments with flattened winged seeds staggered can be observed. These dried fruits were seen hanging down from branches.
Hoping to get the ID

Any chance for Schrebera swietenioides Roxb...?

I have seen Schrebera swietenioides trees in this area but in flowering phase. You may be right. I don't know how its flowers look. Thanks for the lead.
I think the fruits in the following link look close to fruits in my picture.

... is correct! its Schrebera swietenioides (Oleaceae, the jasmine family), called as 'gant phal' due to the bell-shaped fruits. A red listed medicinal plant having sporadic distribution. Have seen reasonably good size of population only in Sandur in KA and in Bastar.
Regarding the plant, I have an interesting story to tell...
        It was in 2006, during a fieldwork in the areas of Uttara Kannada distrct, (North Canara) of Karnataka, some where near Mundgod, beside the Sirsi-Hubli main road,  we came to notice this plant in fruiting.. Unable to identify, we collected the fruits and noted down the bark characters.. then , there was a villager passing by. We stoped him to ask for that plant. He said its called as "Ghanti mara" (The bell tree), as the fruits resembled bells.! Then, we asked about its usage, if any. he said- not much more, but the wood is very light, and is used to make some parts of Bullock cart.
.. And we came back to lab.. With the critical screening of all the literature, we came to know- its Schrebera swietenioides  of Oleaceae. then , interestingly, its listed in Red list too..!! ( Ref: 100 Red-Listed Medicinal Plants of Conservation Concern in Southern India by K. Ravi Kumar and D.K. Ved, Foundation for Revitalisation of Local Health Traditions (FRLHT), 2000.)
.. Then next day only, we ran back to that area , since there was a road extention was planned..We planned to colect some seeds as well as the plant material for further propagation..
 But...
.. The time we reached there.. there was nothing but a Burnt trunk.!!!!!!!
...Later we guessed- probably our interest in the plant might have given a hint to the villager.. and may be... he was also searching for the plant from a long time..
 Its just like we have shown him the plant...And he  might have taken it.!!! 
.....We came back with utter sad...
And thereafter., we could not notice the tree anywhere..
It is Schrebera swietenioides. I have collected it from Pune district.
