Dear friends,

Here are photos attached of what I believe as G. tiliifolia (also spelt tiliaefolia).

Regards.

Dinesh ji
Do these four photographs belong to the same tree?

Dinesh ji
I had my doubts. These photographs may not belong to the same species. I doubt the first one to be G. tiliiaefolia. It could be G. asiatica.

Gurcharan ji, though confident that it must be G. tiliaefolia ... will stand corrected if not.
Hoping some clarifying comments to come by.
Regards.

Thanks Neil ji for clarification
No Wonder why Brandis (Indian trees) did not want to give them independent status. All characters seem to be showing variation.

Sure Neil ji ... please do post ... especially those which have character(s) differentiating it from G. asiatica.

I think these images may be of Grewia asiatica L. as Peduncles much longer than petioles as per keys in BSI Flora of India

I think there is a mix up of images from four places/ times as per another thread.
I think 1st & 3rd may be of Grewia asiatica L. and others may be of Grewia tiliifolia

Many thanks Gurcharan ji for resurfacing this query.
Yes Garg ji, there are two sets as seen in the earlier post.
The first two photos with plants in flowering are from Burondi, Apr 12, 2009 ... these I think are G. tiliifolia, however you have thought them as G. asiatica in one of the responses of this post.
The last two photos are from Karnala, Dec 29, 2009 ... these must be G. tiliifolia.

Regards.
Dinesh
