Dear all, its very much confusion in kala kuda and pandhra kuda the local marathi name..
Kala kuda is Holarrhena pubescens (bark dark colour)
Pandhra kuda or Dahi kuda is Wrightia tinctoria (bark whitish)
Infact in many marathi literature it has been confusing..

this foto is Wrightia tinctoria

My information (Useful Plants of India, CSIR) is reverse, as rightly written by Neil ji and Ajinkya ji

Kala Kuda, Indrajau, mitha indrajau refer to Wrightia tinctoria

dola-kuda, pandhara-kuda, karwa indrajau, kadu indrajau refer to Holarrhena pubescens

Hello H S, ... please help us by elaborating with references, else it becomes difficult to get convinced by what is stated in your post ... especially, when we are getting to know that we have been knowing these names entirely wrong.

Regards.
Dinesh

Hi Prof.Singh, Dinesh & 'H.S',
   Agreed there is a bit of confusion in the local [Marathi / Hindi] names.
 
 Dr. Almeida in his 'Flora of Maharashtra' Vol 2 has confused matters even further. Accordingly :
 Holarrhena antidysentrica [ syn. H.pubescens - what I know as Safed Kuda] is Kuda
 Wrightia arborea [what I know as Tambda Kuda] is Dhordudha Kuda.
 Wrightia tinctoria [what I know as Kala Kuda] is Safed Kuda.
 Wrightia tinctoria var.rothii is Kala Kuda.
 
From my experience in the field.... this is one area where I chose not to follow Dr. Almeida's dictat.
                         With regards,
                          Neil Soares.
