yes the ones on FOS are from really dry and arid areas near belgaon, I am not sure where Kehimkar has photographed it. But your mangrove observation is interesting.
Do you have any more pictures of it. I would like to see them

oh!!!Navendu, if you are certain that it is not C. sepiaria, your validation becomes more important than Rohit who is positive about it.C. pedunculosa (synonym of C. rotundifolia) is described in FOS ... BUT it is found at higher elevations.Any further enlightenment will help (calling both Navendu as well as Rohit).Regards.

I am pretty certain its not sepiaria, I think its pedunculosa or C. rotundifolia (although leaves may not be necessarily rotund)
in that case I am afraid its Capparis sepiaria
