Dear Neil ji,
Some of the locals think this Jit-eggi (Dalbergia latifolia), but they are not sure. If possible, can you post a few pictures of D.latifolia. This too is a species that is on my 'to plant' list.
What are the features that tell apart P.marsupium and P.santalinus?

Have all 3 trees on my farm at Shahapur.
Pterocarpus santalinus [Red Sanders] occurs naturally only in a small area in Andhra Pradesh and adjoining parts of Tamil Nadu. It is obviously planted on my property.
Sending you photographs of the leaves of all 3 for comparison.
Dear Dr. Neil,
Thanks a lot for the pictures, appreciate it. Today I made a small scraping on one of the tree and a from it exuded blood-like sap.
The leaves of the tree (species 4 b, the one that I had posted yesterday), are exactly like D.latifolia.
Forwarding again for Id confirmation or otherwise pl.
