No, I'm not sure. But it still looks like a tamarind leaf to me. Any other suggestions?

Hi LisaPowers, From this link itself its clear that both leaves are different. The shape is very similar but in tamarind the rachillae is attached alternately to the rachis. But in this spotter they are arranged oppositely. I hope its clear from both the photographs [this spotter and that in the link]. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rachis]
