I think the leaves are opposite and not alternate as written wrongly earlier.

Could it be a Viburnum species?!

Hi,

Most probably Viburnum acuminatum (Caprifoliaceae). Please check
following characters.
1. Corolla rotate or tubular
2. Leaf margins recurved
3. Leaves (beneath) branchlets and inflorescence are covered with
round peltate scales.

Regards,
Giby

Hello All!

            This is Premna coriacea C.B.Cl. of family Verbenaceae. It is an extensive climber found occasionally in dense forests of Western ghats.

But Sathish, in his description, said that it is a Tree! That is why I think it is not Premna.

hello...

       Even i think the posted photos is of Premna coriacea, it is a straggling climber.
Mr. Satish please check the habit of the plant, may be the plant has climbed on some other tree, giving tree like appearance...

Thanks everybody for going into great research work.
I agree that the inflorescence does look like from Genus Premna.
As far as I remember this was definitely a tree....unless if it happens to be a great big climber engulfing whole of the tree that no leaves of the original tree are visible(or which may have dried)
Please take a look at the IMG_9451 and the newly added IMG 9453 which show large woody branches.
If anybody from the group happen to be in Amboli please visit the Nangarts. The branches of this tree surround the temple present there from almost all sides and one can easily take the pictures of the foliage. of this unmistakable plant(?)

IMG 9453 is not available!
As you doubted the genus Premna grows as if it is a branch of the host
tree. It would be apt to call strangler rather than climber! But
Gamble says it can be trees as well! (we have to be very careful I
guess). Now I remember I have seen Premna grows as tree in Waynad.
I hereby agree the identification of these pictures as Premna coriacea
and not Viburnum acuminatum as I earlier idied. Sorry for the
confusion.

I think, all members has to take notes while taking pictures itself
rather than remembering such important notes that might always result
in documenting mistakes. Making field notes would certainly give
precise data.


Regards
Giby

Attaching the remaining image IMG_9453.
I also agree the fact of this being Premna.
I will have to call Hemant Ogale( who has a resort there) from Amboli to check for the plant.
Will let you know after wards.
