Hello friends.
The leaves of the parasite are small. The leaves of the parent tree
are large. Would appreciate ID of both.
Regards
Yazdy.

Dear Mr. Nandan Kalbag,
Many thanks for the information. One observation is that whenever these stranglers latch on to a parent tree, the inside becomes hollow. A cavity is created in the parent tree. These cavities are most frequently occupied by honey bee, lizards like monitor lizards, an occasional flying squirrel.
Regards
Yazdy.

The pictures are of 'Strangler fig', they are not parasites but kill the host by strangling.

The leaves are not clear for either the host or the parasite please
send distinct pictures in which the leaves are clear both upper and
lower part of the leaves.
The "parasite" doesnt looks like a parasite that take food from the
host it could be a hemiepiphyte comes under the genus Ficus.

Regards
Giby

Yazdy ji

I am of the opinion that Gibby is right. The Parasite is not a typical
parasite. it is a ficus species most probably...

"Thank you for the pictures and the fast response to the queries. The host (
I hope the later pictures are of the hosts; no specification regarding the
same) could be Bridelia retusa (Euphorbiaceae)
and the parasite (please
don't treat that as a parasite; it can be called as a hemi epiphyte) can be
a species of Ficus (may be Ficus microcarpa?).
May be others can give a
better idea.
Regards,
Giby"
