Would go with pentandra The end depicts the gender. But gender in ICBN is very technical. A tree is male, but if it has been given a feminine generic name then it is to be followed. In other words, even if a name ends with a masculine suffix, it will be considered as male even if it is not!!!

It is so confusing all the time. Ideally the name should be Hydnocarpus pentandrus but interestingly in the original description it is written as Hydnocarpus pentandra Buch. Oken Allg. Basionym: Chilmoria pentandra Buch. London 13 2 : Article A generic name retains the gender assigned by botanical tradition, irrespective of classical usage or the author's original usage. A generic name without a botanical tradition retains the gender assigned by its author.

It means, Pankaj Kumar is a girl if his dad says so :P First step if to see what the original basionym was? In this case it was "pentandra" but at the same time, original generic name was also "Chilmoria", obviously both with the same gender.

When a genus is divided into two or more genera, the gender of the new generic name or names should be that of the generic name that is retained. Hence, when you transfer it to new genus it was supposed to retain the gender of generic name as " Hydnocarpus pentandrus " but this didnt happen according to the protologue where it is mentioned as "pentandra". So this name should be retained, according to me and it should be Hydnocarpus pentandra unless it was corrected by some one according to another article Hope this is understandable.
