Hello Rashida ji
this taxon as far as i know is Acacia pennata Willd.
since it has leaflets abt 40-50 pairs as compared with that of A.
concina which has 12-30 pairs of leaflets. i have seen this plant at
silionda, but have never encountered A. concina (Shikakai ) in Mumbai
forest. fruit in A. pennata are plat and not wrinkled as in A.
concina. please just check .

regards
Satish Pardeshi

Thank you Satish ji for the information. The leaflets in my pics are certainly more than mentioned as for A. concinna.  As you have mentioned and also Flora of Mah. vol II mentions leaflets 40-50 pairs, so in all likelihood it is A. pennata (Linn.) Willd. However, the volume does not mention or describe the species A. concinna, so that remains unverified. I do not have any other reference for it except S.Ingalhalikar, Vol II.
 
regards,
Rashida.
