260311-PR-To ID- Chennai: This is a tree laden with bunches of small flowers which are typically hiding below the leaves. Someone in a neighbouring house said it had fruits like a sapota.-( could have been guessing.)
The tree is in a private residence in Mylapore, Chennai. 
- Yes, it matches the pics of Lepisanthes tetraphylla. I seem to be running into Sapotaceae of late ; saw a Chrysophyllum cainito for the first time last week. There was a small ( 8-9 feet) pruned specimen of this tree at Agri-Horti garden but photogrphy is not allowed there. So I was lucky to stumble on this tree, seen over the wall of a cousin's house.

Habit: Tree
Habitat: Semi-evergreen forest, near a water falls

Could it be some other Lepisanthes sp? Has 4 pairs of leaves and shouldn't it be having only 2 pairs.
Name could be a misnomer sir. It can have 3-6 pairs of leaflets.

Sharing some images of Lepisanthes tetraphylla [Sapindaceae], an attractive understorey tree, flowering & fruiting. 
The photographs of the buds, the flower close-up, and the fruits are from three separate trees. Most of the leaves in these trees had three pairs of leaflets. The fruit is coated with a silvery down, very prominent when young.
Observed on the 24th of April, 2016 in Matheran (courtesy of ...).
Marvellous details.
