Is there a way I can check some database?

I have searched in flowerofindia.net, pradeep kishen' book, and other available pdf's on  the net.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks,
Raman

Seems to be a very interesting tree. Can you send a close up of the
flowers and fruits if possible.

Mr. Raman, a close up of flower and even of the cut fruit is necessary
to determine the family and the sp. ID. You may pick up a fallen
flower and a fruit. It seems to be an unusual tree hence this request.

I am scratching my head as this tree is in Bangalore Lalbagh; and
am familiar with most of the other trees there. The nature of
flowers , the petals arrangements etc. lead me to think that this
could be a member of malphigiaceae. I suppose this tree could be
Byrsonima crassifolia syn. Malpighia crassifolia. I have requested
Raman to send a few more photographs of flowers (close ups)for con
firmation. Comments please..
