How about Dillenia alata?

Any comment on the number of petals in Dillenia. I cant see any photo
of Dillenia on net with 4 petals.

However, the floras report the range from 4-7.

Regards,
Ritesh.

Yes Ritesh ji, I was all the time wondering about the venation in your photographs. In most species of Dillenia including D. suffruticosa the lateral veins are very prominent, but not in your photographs. D. alata does have faint veins seen in your plant. Let us wait for more comments.
