Hi Raghu,
  The leaves in photographs 4 & 5 are of Miliusa tomentosa [Saccopetalum tomentosa] locally called Hum. Have 3 Bibba [Semecarpus anacardium] trees on my property.
  Sending you a close-up of the leaves and fruit for comparison.
                            Regards,
                              Neil

Hi Neil,

Not sure of the leaves posted in this mail. These trees were adjacent. It could be of any of the Marking nut tree or the Miliusa Tomentosa. 
In fact, while in the field, I wondered for a second if the leaves of the two different trees look alike.

All I remember, after photographing Marking nut tree I  walked back to Milusa tomentosa to snap the name plate.
Normally to differentiate between new unidentified tree kinds, I click a  picture of a different object -sky/landscape. I did not do this this time to invite more problems.

Better to check leaf pictures of the Marking Nut tree from Tanay poster today 

Regards
Raghu
