After the recent discussion about the Loranthus species I checked my records from Loranthaceae family.
This parasite was observed in Pench in Dec 07
Is it also Taxillus elliptius?
or do we need some more characters to go for ID?

Dear Satish Phadke,

The flowers appear to be regular in your picture so they are
Dendrophthoe. The Taxillus flowers have to be irregular. This is D.
falcata var. coccinea. Rgds
