Satish ji,
i too thought it was Z. caracutta.
How to differentiate bet Z. caracutta and Z. oenoplia.
Attaching the pics taken at Sanjay Gandhi National Park, Borivli, Mumbai in the last week of Sept 2009.
cheers,
shubhada

There is a spelling correction in these two names.

It is

Ziziphus caracutta Buch.-Ham. ex Roxb.


and

Ziziphus oenoplia ( L. ) Mill.

Both belong to the family Rhamnaceae

Regards,

Stephen...
