This Callicarpa plant(A small tree) was observed in Phansad. I think it is Callicarpa tomentosa Syn. C.lanata acc. to BSI Flora Mah.
FOI site shows similar plant as Callicarpa macrophylla.  Are they same or different?

Hi Dr.Phadke,
    This looks like Callicarpa tomentosa - one of the differences being that the leaves here have entire margins whereas in Callicarpa macrophylla the leaves have dentate margins.

Satish ji

Leaf blades distinctly serrate, oblong or narrowly oblong-ovate; mature fruit white.........C. macrophylla

Leaf blades entire, repand or minutely denticulate, broadly ovate; mature fruit purple.......C. tomentosa

They are two distinct species with lot of confusion in synonyms

Here is C. macrophylla from Delhi
