... not familiar with specific differences between the two species F. indica and F. montana.
At Tungareshwar WLS, the locals call the plants found there by the name athrun (Marathi: अठरुन) as such which is more appropriate to F. indica .. tambut (Marathi: तांबूट OR तांबट) seems to me, a generic name for Flacourtia species.
Hello OIKOS ... are there any simple comparisons / clear differences among the two ?
Reply from Oilkos in a different thread:
"ID 34 SMP 26 Feb 09 looks more of Flacourtia sp. Most common is F. Montana - commonly known as Tambat."
batoka plum, governor’s plum, ... Madagascar plum, Mauritius plum, Rhodesia plum
in Marathi: अठरुन athrun, तांबूट tambut

And what this could be? Another plant which looks like Maytenus senegalensis (Henkal) with red petiole but flowers totally different.
