Eravikulam National Park :: Casearia ovata :: DV04JUL : 6 posts by 3 authors. 5 images.
Eravikulam National Park
Date: June 4, 2014 ... Base elevation: 2000m asl
Casearia ovata (Lam.) Willd. ... (family: Flacourtiaceae, also placed in Salicaceae)
Very nice microscopic photo
those familiar with Casearia species ... please take a re-look at the photos to check for wrong identification. The leaf does not seem to match that of C. ovata (in which the leaf stalk, above has a characteristic groove towards the leaf base, and the margin has hint of being crenate / dentate) or that of C. graveolens (in which the leaf has crenulate margin).
Are there variations in the Casearia spp. ?
Put here are cropped versions of my posted photos for closer look ...
... the flower cluster, the flower about 3 mm across
... the fruits, about 10 mm across

This appears to be Casearia rubescens Dalz. as per images herein.

Thank you very much, ..., for this possible ID.
I hope it is validated soon.
I am convinced ... this must be Casearia rubescens.
Correcting my notes at flickr.
I have based my thoughts on the basis of the conspicuous reddish-brown petiole and the midrib ... seen in the last photo of posted pictures.
The reddish brown petiole and midrib of the leaf could be the reasoning for the epithet - rubescens.
Yes, ... Appears so.
