Yes Beautiful shots. We also saw this tree in lower himalayas during our chakrata visit Thank you Until now i have seen only this one. One without corona now correctly known as Holarrhena pubescens , commonly known as Indrajao , feverpod and perhaps the real Kutaja of Ayurveda.
The other is the Wrightia antidysenterica , the coral swirl popularly sold in nurseries under the name arcticsnow, Snowflake. A plant with distinct corona, petals distinctly obovate, also known as Meethi indrajao. Let us also bring in the related species Wrightia tinctoria with smaller flowers, linear petals, also known as sweet indrajao.
To resolve this confusion let us go to the original descriptions in Flora of British India and synonyms. The first plant is described as named by Wallich and subsequently A. Wrightia antidysenterica Grah cited as synonym. FBI is not sure about synonymy of Chonemorpha antidysenterica G. Wrightia tinctoria is a distinct species and should not come in confusion except for names indrajao and kutaja sometimes applied. The third crucial plant is one described as Wrightia zeylonica L.
At the time Flora of British India, synonyms were cited but basionym author was not included in the accepted name. When this practice started Chonemorpha G. Don remained unknown and combination came to be known as Holarrhena antidysenterica L. The second website, though a very reputed one, but puts first black and white illustration correctly but coloured photograph shows Wrightia antidydenterica.
The Plant List worst confused, even putting H. The correct synonymy can be seen at:. The second plant very distinct though remained in confusion because people remembered L. The unfortunate thing being that people remembered antidysenterica but never bothered to know where it came from, and got tagged wrongly to Holarrhena antidydenterica L.
Perhaps also important to mention that earliest name for this species was given by Roth in as Echites antidysenterica as against Chonemorpha antidysenteria G Don, , but Roth's name can't be taken as basionym Roth can't go in parenthesis as it is a a later homonym of Echites antidysenterica L.
Thank you very much From the references I read and use, I find kutaja is Holarrhena pubescens Wall. Don earlier literature quote Holarrhena antidysenterica Wall.
The real confusion started when basionym author was included wrongly as L. The the Wikipedia has confused the things further. I hope, in times to come majority of confusions will be resolved This is Holarrhena pubescens.
