Hello
May be Sterculia villosa but authority should be only Roxburgh
and HS ji Sterculia villosa Roxburgh ex Smith is should be placed as a heterotypic synonym.
That wht I think.

Thank you.

Dear Mayur ji and H S
Perhaps I am not able to comprehend. The name Sterculia villosa was first proposed by Roxburgh in Hort. Bengal. 50. 1814, but is not accepted as it is nom. nud., the name having become legitimate after description was provided by Smith in Cycl. (Rees) 34: Sterculia no. 16. 1816, as such the name becomes S. villosa Roxburgh ex Sm with official date of publication as 1816. 
Roxburgh evidently published detailed description only in 1832 in Fl. Ind. (Roxburgh) 3: 153 (-154). 1832 [Oct-Dec 1832]. I wonder then how Sterculia villosa Roxburgh, 1832 get precedence over Sterculia villosa Roxburgh ex Sm, 1816.
