... looks like Mallotus philippensis ... the inflorescence seems extraordinarily long ... my guess may be wrong.

This is Mallotus tetracoccus (Roxb.) Kurz of Euphorbiaceae family. 
In M. tetracoccus the leaves are broadly ovate accuminate, peltate brown fulvous stellate-tomentose beneath.

Thank you... a new plant for me...

Please take a look at this portal.. http://thewesternghats.in/speciespage/species/show/27821

(most of you perhaps know it already) ...they have a nice set of
pictures...
I have two questions:

FIRST THE BARK CUT.. i see this often... what is it and why do it?
does it harm the tree. do the botanists get prior permission to do
this?

SECOND question... what is the brown round stufff on the surface of
the leaves that the site calls tomentose... ????


Thanks
Usha di

I thought I had said it...
and AGREE WITH PANKAJ JI>>>
SEPARATE THREADS PLEASE>>>
IT WOULD BE BETTER FOR ALL>>>INCLUDING THE SENDER>>>

The figure 3 Talaguppa 2011_09_18 (2).JPG above...
is a typical somewhat wasted example of Budhha's coconut...
if it were very fresh.. the contents would be shades of white and
slight pink... and beige...

This is Pterigota alata, commonly known as Budha's coconut. I have
seen this tree in Madras Theosophical society campus also.

It is Pterygota alata (Roxb.) R. Brown (Syn: Sterculia alata)- of Sterculiaceae family. It is not an exotic species as they are distributed in our forests they grow as tall as >35m in the evergreen forests.
