Respected members! These are some photos of Citrus sp which we called locally as "Khatti". So this should be C. jhamberi or C.aurantium subsp jhamberi as you sugested? sorry i didnt post photos earlier.
Yes it is, now correctly known as C. taitensis, as mentioned earlier.

Thank you Sir. These are some photos of Meetha and musambi here in my area.. the first four photos are of meetha and the last five photos are of musambi. These look different. Can i use name "Citrus limetta" for both these Citrus plants? Thanks alot for your guidance.
Second one (last five images) is not Mosambi, which won't have such rough rind. It looks closer to Jambhiri.
Thanks, ... But images in this thread looks much different from those in another thread at Citrus taitensis
Would you pl. have a re-look ?
To me closest match for both leaves and fruits is C. jambhiri only which has now been merged with Citrus taitensis. I would have gone for Citrus hystrix with which fruits resemble most but in that species petiole is as long/as broad as leaf blade.

In Assam, India semi-wild populations are found. The rough lemon is one of the most important rootstocks of Citrus species, cultivated for this purpose in India, USA, South Africa, and Australia. At the end of the ­sixteenth century it had been introduced to southeast Africa by the Portuguese, and later it was distributed to Europe and the New World. In Australia, it has naturalized along creek banks and on rainforest margins; often persists around old habitations in New South Wales and southern Queensland.)
