Was at my farm at Shahapur [north of Bombay] today with my friend ...
Bridelia retusa [Asana] trees were laden with fleshy drupes which attracted a number of birds including Yellow-footed Green Pigeons, Red-vented Bulbuls, Common Mynas and Ultramarine Flycatchers {two males & one [or more] females}.  Enjoyed the better half of the morning watching these dainty flycatchers. Sending a few photographs [the last 2 are ...].

tree for id: would be grateful for an id
large tree at prince of wales museum, mumbai. this sunday
This is Asana [ a Bridelia sp.] possibly B.spinosa.

I can see the similarity in the leaves now. the tree is really large and the spines must have fallen off with age
Will be sending the list of saplings as soon as I get some clarification on the ids from ...
it look like Bridelia squamosa not B. spinosa
Would like to know on what basis you have arrived at this conclusion. Have both species of these trees at my farm at Shahapur.
Have also in the past had a detailed discussion with Dr. Almeida on this topic. As seen in the photographs most of the leaves are fresh. In Bridelia spinosa the leaves are more elliptic with an acute tip whereas in Bridelia squamosa the leaves are broader and more oval in shape with older leaves tending to loose chlorophyll and developing spots because of a fungal attack.

Bridelia for ID :: Devgad, Konkan, May 2017 :: ARKMAY01 : 6 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (9)
Seen these trees at 2 locations at Devgad, Kokan, MH in May 2017. Location 1 was a mountaintop and Location 2 was at the base of the mountain next to a salt water creek. A similar tree in the same locality was identified as Bridelia stipularis here.
Are these trees B. stipularis only or are they B. retusa?
Though the images are devoid of flowers and fruits, you observed them to be trees and the photos are showing the same.  The leaves are of typical Bridelia and I think that this is the common but variable B. retusa. The spines in older parts may or may not be present.  Here you have referred to some earlier images which were identified as B. stipularis.  You mentioned there that the habit was climber/tree.  Please note that B. retusa is usually a tree and sometimes forming a bush whereas B. stipularis is a climber.  Next, the flowers of B. stipularis are 6 - 12 mm in diameter, i.e. larger than any other species and the leaves become successively smaller on a branchlet.  
There was a dispute sometimes back regarding the identity of a Bridelia tree from Bangalore which I had identified as B. retusa but there was argument that the flowers in that case were appearing much bigger and B. stipularis is also rarely a tree, as mentioned in the Flora of India, Volume 23, 2012.  Yes, in that work it was indeed mentioned that B. stipularis is rarely a tree.  In this case I wish to clarify that a revision is usually prepared and presented  mainly based on study of herbarium specimens and the author/s has to depend on the field notes and he has to mention what the collectors had observed in the field.  A few collectors may always note wrong observations.  Moreover, the descriptions presented in the taxonomic revisions are based on measurements available on dried specimens and they are bound to be less than what we see and measure in the field.
I have looked carefully at all the earlier images referred to by you and all the comments made therein.  However, I wish to inform you that those images are lacking typical conditions seen in B. stipularis.  I have many images of this species and I will present the same here to clarify the doubts.
Here are two images posted by you earlier. These images have characters of typical B. stipularis. I am also attaching herewith an image of a herbarium specimen of the species downloaded from the website of the British Museum, Natural History (BM). Hope that you will understand the differences of the species from B. retusa.

Thank you so much ... for detailed analysis.
I was confused because both these species were located on the same mountain, may be 200 metres from each other.
I take the pics posted originally on this post as as B. retusa only.

Please help me identify this tree. Please find attached the photos of the tree.
The lower trunk of the tree has prominent thorns. The rest of the upper trunk and the branches do not have any thorns.
Location: Kandivali West, Mumbai, Maharashtra
Date: 1st June 2017
It looks like Bridelia species, the leaf looks like Bridelia; for correct identification either flower or fruit necessary; some Bridelia species bear thorns on stem.
The secondary venation of the leaves is that of typical Bridelia (Phyllanthaceae) and the species appears to be B. retusa, quite common in that area.

Validation for Bridelia glauca requested : 5 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (3)
The attached plant images are identified as Bridelia glauca based on the following characters (Ref: eflora china) 
Flowers monoecious, many-flowered fascicles with up to 50 flowers, axillary; bracts very small; pedicel distinct 1.5-5 mm. Male flowers white, 3.5-5 mm in diam., sepals lanceolate to triangular, up to 2 mm; petals obovate, lanceolate, or spatulate, ca. 0.8 mm, margin 3-5-toothed; disk pulvinate or saucer-shaped,  
Please validate

Hundred percent Bridelia glauca.
..., I do not have good images of this species. If possible and permissible, please send me high resolution images of the species for reproduction in my book on Phyllanthaceae, being sent to press shortly for which I will duly acknowledge your help.

Further scrutiny of more images kindly sent by ... reveals that in this plant the lateral nerves of the leaves are terminating directly at the margins into the marginal nerves (instead of forming brochidodromous loops with the superadjacent nerves) and the fruits are appearing to be slightly bilobed towards apex indicating that they were 2-locular (instead of 1-locular) and the tendency of the inflorescences to sometimes become leafless pseudoracemes or pseudopanicles are characters of Bridelia retusa.

Very tiny flowers. 

This is also Asana [ a Bridelia sp.] possibly B.spinosa

You know in our place Asana tree is for Terminalia alata!! They say that the log doesnt bend if dried in sunlight or kept in water. So I found it good for hanging my orchids on to it... 

I guess Bridelia squamosa 

According to me this looks like Bridelia retusa (Asana असाणा)  only. 

it is Bridelia spinosa

I Hope B.retusa and B. spinosa are Synonyms. Please elaborate if not correct.

Flowering
Date - September, 2011

This is Bridelia retusa
At present flowering in Pune too
Euphorbiaceae Asana असाणा

Yes, i was wondering i am missing something here.
Missed the picture with the conical spines.

Yes it is Bridelia retusa of Phyllanthaceae family, for sure.

The tiny flowers of this tree are really beautiful.  I diagnose the plant by looking at the leaf which is very characteristic and unmistakable even from a distance.  
It is thick; leathery; the veins or nerves( I don't know what to call them correctly) are clear prominent and perfectly parallel originating from the mid vein. Of course the shape is important and the area of occurrence. Attaching some flowers captured recently in last fortnight from Mhatoba Tekdi Kothrud.

It is now called Bridelia spinosa. My trees are also flowering. Sending a few of my photographs. 
According to "the plant list" Bridelia spinosa (Roxb.) Willd. is a synonym of Bridelia retusa (L.) A.Juss.
http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/kew-24616
the plant list put B. squamosa as synonym and  B. spinosa synonym of B. retusa... 
 anyone pls clarify..  or we consider this all as one species following the plant list...
Flora Malesiana, Dressler, Euphorbiaceae, treats both species  (B. squamosa (Lehm.) Gehrm. and B. spinosa (Roxb.) Willd.) as synonyms of B. retusa (L.) A. Juss. Obviously they are same species. Flora Malesiana is one publication
which can't be easily ignored.
In Maharashtra we see two Bridelia (tree) species one is Bridelia spinosa (Roxb.) Willd. (plant stems with spines, dioecious flower) and other one is Bridelia squamosa (Lamk.) Gehrm. (Plant without spines, monoecious flower)
please anyone clarify this!!!!!
There is another:
Bridelia hamiltoniana Wall. ex Müll.Arg. (synonym of Bridelia Montana (Roxb.) Willd.)
http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=Brideliahamiltoniana&w=91314344%40N00...

i was talking about trees,, Bridelia hamiltonia is a shrub.. we also get Bridelia stipularis in maharashtra.
Yes they may be two different trees, with some differences, but only an expert who has worked on specimens all over the world can decide whether differences are enough to call them as different species or not, otherwise there would be no heterotypic synonym ever in this world. The simple fact that important recent publications treat them as synonms is enough to be satisfied. Perhaps the differences are considered even strong enough to call them as distinct varieties, although some earlier authors had done. Till we find any new publication which contradicts Flora Malesiana, I think we have to follow it.
And yes Bridelia hamiltoniana Wall. ex Mull.Arch is a synonym of B. montana (Roxb.) Willd. http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/kew-24576
So we have two B. retusa and B. montana.
sirji both the species are very common in Maharashtra and different from each other, than how can one say them or treat them as a single species... atleast i am not satisfied with your explanation.. even Fr. Santapau and the Gehrm. treated these two different species, but they called B. spinosa by Bridelia roxburghiana which is synonym of B. spinosa Willd.
It is not question of my or your liking. We have to live with the present and accept what the science today accepts. I have great respect for Fr. Santapau, and all other great taxonomists of India, but have to accept if some recent revisions based on advanced taxonomic research have relegated some taxa to synonymy. I have numerous new species and name changes to my publication list, some of these have been changed recently, but that does not mean I won't accept those changes. We may have our opinions, but it is the latest taxonomic treatment that counts. Bridelia in Flora Malesiana is
one the most recent treatments and most authors will follow it.

i never said it is a topic of liking... we have two different species in Maharashtra,, and i think many of the members (from maharashtra or Western India) on the group also will agree with it.. I think We need to check with Original Description and type material. I have not seen Flora of Malesiana.. so i don't know about the book.
It is online. Here is the link http://www.nationaalherbarium.nl/euphorbs/specB/Bridelia.htm

Flowerpeckers and Bridelia retusa:  Have you ever watched Tickell’s Flowerpeckers going absolute "ga… ga…" over some delectable fruits? Yes, they do so when Bridelia retusa tree
(http://herbarium-images.googlecode.com/hg/specimen-photos/1811-bridelia-airy-shawii.jpg;
http://www.nationaalherbarium.nl/thaieuph/images/ThImageB/Bridcurt-photo.gif;
http://www.flickr.com/photos/wwwssncomphotos/6068646466/) is in fruit.
Last March, while I visited a lake in Vidyaranayapura which has been developed by BBMP to `disuse', I chanced upon a Bridelia retusa tree in full fruit and was given a peek into the addictive habit of the flowerpeckers to its fruits. While there was a very pugnacious flowerpecker which declared war on other flowerpeckers visiting the tree, and kept chasing them out of the canopy, there were other thieves and robbers making merry. In this melee, I watched flowerpeckers devouring the small Bridelia fruits in neat gulps from as close as two
feet, and at that, they did not care a tuppence about my presence so close. At any given point of time there were at least 10 birds given to such a frenzied feeding, that bordered around the point of near addiction – a behavior which I have seen only when these birds are feeding on the pyriform white fruits of Securinega leucopyrus (http://farm5.staticflickr.com/4141/4907613538_de6bcdcfd9_z.jpg;
http://www.weatheredwind.org/notes/wp-content/uploadsf/secujuly8.jpg).
This medium sized Bridelia tree can be planted in small gardens and it will be in fruit for nearly 6 months and through summer. This tree is a good replacement to the exotic Singapore Cherry. I am sure one will have
many delightful days of watching these flowerpeckers at close quarters when the tree is in fruit. I happen to have some seeds of Bridelia sourced by ... of Pancharatna Plus to give away to those who want to nursery them and distribute the saplings to others – to spread the joy of Flowerpecker watching. Do contact me if interested ( I am out of town from Aug 18-26).

 
Bridelia retusa - fresh flowering of season:  Photographed at Matheran on 12th Sept., 2012. To mention the last flowering was observed till April, 2012, but that was evergreen forest patch and this was in forest clearing.

Bridelia spinosa sapling Attachments (6). 1 post by 1 author.
Photographed on my property at Shahapur. The sapling was collected at Khandala. The leaves are much smaller and narrower compared to those of B.squamosa [as seen in my next post]. Saplings anyway, have much larger leaves than their adult counterparts.

Bridelia spinosa : 12 posts by 5 authors.
For many years have faced the dilemma on how to differentiate between B.squamosa & B.spinosa. Most reference books are pretty ambiguous. Dr.Almeida's 'Flora of Maharashtra' mentions that in the former the bark is yellowish and the drupes fleshy and presumably greenish with a yellowish tinge, whereas in the latter the bark is greyish and the drupes purplish-black.
I believe I have the problem licked.
B.spinosa differs from B.squamosa in having smaller, narrower and more pointed leaves.
Have not encountered B.spinosa in / around Bombay or at Shahapur.
The tree is well showcased at Khandala and Lonavala. Sending a few photographs.
My previous posts at these links are therefore erroneous :
My apologies to ... for this
Inadventently got it right at this link, but this was also photographed at Khandala.
Also therefore feel that Dinesh Valke's recent post of a tree at ? Yeoor ? Thane was also way off the mark.
thanks for this. A long time dilemma for me too,.
I will now test out your theory and see if it holds good. 
Bridelia retusa is one of the commonest Euphorbiaceae in Maharashtra. It is a variable species, so please need not worry about the identity. I can provide you full synonymy in case you need it.
Managed to find only this one specimen of a drupe of Bridelia spinosa. The photographs were taken in Jan.12 at the base of Visagadh fort in Lonavala.
Distinctly remember having eaten it and planting the seed which unfortunately did not germinate.
Thanks ... for stressing that B. spinosa and B. squamosa (B. retusa) are separate species. (I had come to understand that the spines are shed as the tree matures, thus easily convinced that the two species are synonymous). I will correct my notes at earliest.
A slight correction - B.spinosa [previously B.retusa] and B.squamosa are the 2 species of trees found in Maharashtra.
I have revised the genus Bridelia for Flora of India and I reiterate that there is a long tail of synonymy for Bridelia retusa, a variable species.
Thanks, ...,
I will go with ... who is an expert on this family that B.spinosa and B.squamosa are syn. of B.retusa (as in Flora of India), which is also agreed to by the following well known sources:
This has also been discussed previously in our group & details can be seen at ID 300911. More details can be seen at Bridelia retusa
Fair enough, but a difficult conclusion specially if one has seen both species in the wild.

ANAPR44 Bridelia retusa (L.) A.Juss. : 14 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (13)
Family: Phyllanthaceae
Date: 17th April 2015
Place: Nandi Hills, Bangalore, Karnataka
Habit: Tree
Habitat: Scrub forest

I think its okay.
Very good pictures.
Why not B. stipularis ...?
Flowers look large (greater than 6mm).
From my side, sir- Bridelia stipularis is scandent in habit and found in the western ghats.
Bridelia scandens (Roxb.) Willd.is a synonym of Bridelia stipularis (L.) Blume
Yes, I am aware of that. I did mention the details about this post is Bridelia retusa and not Bridelia stipularis/Bridelia scandens.
Well, the habit of Bridelia stipularis is scandent or climbing and in this species the flowers (calyx) and the fruits are larger than the other species.
It can be a small tree also, 3-5m.
In support of my contention I refer you to Fl. India, vol 23, pg. 382, [1st line of the last para, on that page] (Publ. BSI) Ed. N.P. Balakrishnan et al.
More interestingly, the Section on Tribe Bridelieae Meul. Arg. is edited by one T. Chakrabarty et al
I take the privilege to inform you that I am the same "one T. Chakrabarty", one of the authors for the genus Bridelia Willd. (Euphorbiaceae, sens. lat.) published in Fl. India 23: 376. 2012.
Having seen the authentically named materials, I believe that the present photographs represent Bridelia retusa (L.) A.Juss. - in its present circumscription. However, since a doubt has been raised on the identity, I refrain from any further comment unless I examine herbarium specimens collected from the same tree which seems impossible. Hence the identity suggested by ... may be accepted.
It is well known that while the herbarium specimens form the base of Angiosperm taxonomy, a photograph, however good it may be, is invalid for scientific purposes without a scale or at least measurements and and such it is useful only for getting a first hand impression of the plant.
I agree fully with your thoughts ... That seems to be an appropriate reply.
We appreciate your efforts in contributing to the knowledge of members of this forum.
Thank you very much ... A herbarium of this can be made as I am very familiar with the forests here. Please let me know if this is required. It can be done.
Please send photographs of fruits of this species when available. I have already posted my comments and for the present I am not discussing the intricate details regarding differences between the two species, i.e. B. retusa and B. stipularis.
I will certainly do that sir. Thank you.

Are you sure the fruits and leaves belong to same plant
The leaves may be of Diospyros melanoxylon while the fruits appear to be from Bridelia retusa
Could it be new leaves of Bridelila retusa!
I suppose the lateral veins on the leaves of Bridelia retusa are exactly parallel and will be same even in new leaves.
My replies are based just on the locality I am used to and I have seen similar leaves and fruits in recent times in these areas.
Diospyros does show variability in leaf character.
My answers are more of an observation than expertise.
Would like to know other views too.
Yes, the leaves are not of Bridelia.
Thank you very much, for your response.
I think I would go and check it again whether the leaves and fruits are of the same tree. 
Today I checked it again; yes, there are two different trees.
I could see the dried leaves of Bridelia retusa, and some fruits of Diospyros melanoxylon. Unfortunately, I could not take the photographs.

Sharing a close-up of the inflorescence of Bridelia retusa [Phyllanthaceae] bearing a few immature fruits. 
The petals of all the flowers in this photograph are pectinate (with toothed ends), typical of male flowers. The female flower petals are described as being spatulate & entire as illustrated in the line drawing of this tree in Flora of China.
Observed on the 24th of April, 2016 in Matheran (courtesy of ...).
Thanks, ..., for the beautiful close up & details.

Is it Bridelia retusa or some other species; the branchlets and abaxial side of leaves pubescent. flowers unisexual, it is a female plant, the size of the flowers smaller than other trees in the area. fruit green and larger than others. the leaf size is also quite larger than commonly seen Bridelia retusa. Your valuable opinion needed.

Only two species are there in your area, B. retusa and B. montana. The leaves of the latter are usually narrowing towards base and therefore I think that this is B. retusa only, a variable species, quite evident form its long tail of synonymy.

Distinct veins on leaf, drupe fruits : 4 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (5)- 1 mb each. 
Please find attached pictures of a tree.
Location-Matheran, Maharashtra, Part of Western Ghats.
Date-Mid December 2019.

Habit-Tree
Leaves-alternate, simple, elliptic, rounded base, apex acute, thick leaves.
Remarkable character-leaves has very distinct veins which are very clear from lower leaf surface.
Though only single fruit is seen at each auxiliary position, the image 'IMG_20181217_124542_Scaled_CR' has dried calyx near fruit at second position.
Could not see big thorns on stem or trunk.
To me also appears close to images at Bridelia retusa

Bridelia retusa.

Trunk of young tree, armed with extra-long spines - perhaps to protect from foragers.

This I have seen in Matheran. That time I had no idea about its identity. 
Thanks … I saw it the first time in SGNP during field trip with BNHS team and our leader briefly explained about the tree to us, and that it is born armed as a matter of protection.

Wild tree from Palakkad area. The tree is called Kalani (Spinous Kino), wood is having good timber value. Timber is valuable, having commercial value.  

Referable to Bridelia cinerescens Gerhm., a synonym of B. retusa.
