Nice pictures!
This should be Jacquinia species of Primulaceae / Theophrastaceae.

Is it? I never new Primulaceae has trees!!! 


Trust me… even Lamiaceae may have trees!!! 


Yes …, I’ve seen Leucosceptrum canum and Vernonia volkameriifolia in Arunachal Pradesh. Tree species from Lamiaceae and Asteraceae respectively. I’ll share the photographs soon.


Ok ….. thanks for the enlightenment.


It is Jacquinia arborea of Theophrastaceae family.


Lamiaceae reminds me of Vitex negundo … and lately with some (or all) species of Verbenaceae getting into Lamiaceae, more and more trees.

Definitely Jacquinia species. I collected one of the Jacquinia species from Coimbatore Forest College, long ago. It was identified as Jacquinia arborea. I am attaching photos for comparison


It may be Theophrastaceae member


I think it should be Jacquinia arborea as per images and details herein ad as reported in Flora of Tamilnadu as at Jacquinia


It is Jacquinia. But not sure of the species
