The pictures that you have attached are quite different from what I
have forwarded. Of course the photographs sent by you are Amoora. In
fact, I have seen plenty of Amoora speceis around my house. The
pictures that I have posted are quite different in nature except for
the compound leaves common to both Amoora and the one posted by me.

Dear All

I think AMOORA LAWII would be a correct name for Aphanamixis polystachya.

This has a reference to Shivaprakash Adavanne's mail. The photographs
( Aphanamixes polystachia. sy. Amoora rohituka ) at Lalbagh ,
Bangalore are quite differet from the photos that I have sent for
identification. Request ID of the photographs sent by me.

Thanks a lot for the pics.
Amoora rohituca is synonym of Aphanamixis polystachya I assume.
