Vijayasankar ji............Dear all, this plant is Pterospermum of Sterculiaceae. It could be either P. rubiginosum or P. reticulatum. We need to know the features of bracteoles to confirm the species id.
Kenneth.....................Fruit looks similar to a tree that I've only seen pics of, not in person: Hymenaea courbaril, West Indian locust.
