Dear Friends,

We have identified the tree in the above pictures as Cochlospermum religiosum.  However the other photographs I have seen on the net of this tree seem to have deeper lobes on the leaves. 
I will be grateful if anyone can confirm the id or help us id the tree.

BTW, we are making a catalogue of trees in our area which can be found here:

This is not Cochlospermum religiosum.Leaves of Cochlospermum
religiosum are quite different (pentaphyllate). Do you have any other
photographs of the tree or bush to be ID-ied..
