Dear members,

Here's an addition to our eFloraofIndia website. 

Toxicodendron wallichii (Hook.f.) Kuntze
Synonym - Rhus wallichii Hook.f.
Family - Anacardiaceae

After going through Rhus punjabensis page on eFI website I found that most of the post there are actually misidentified and the plant is R. wallichii, so I will comment with correct id to every misidentified post.

Here's the simple key to distinguish -
R. wallichii - Panicles axillary or terminal panicle, much shorter than the leaves, rusty tomentose. Drupe globose, 5-7 mm diameter.
R. punjabensis - Panicles terminal, long 10 - 23 cm, densely tomentose. Drupe subglobose, compressed, 3 - 4 mm in diam., red & tomentose (waxy at maturity).

With best regards
Ashutosh Sharma
