… some species of Phyllanthus ?

Can it be some Rhamnus or other member of Rhamnaceae!!

How about Glochidion?

Yes it is a species of Glochidion. fruits are very much important for species identification

I agree with …, It could be any species of Glochidion. In the same location I have photographed another species similar to this one but have yellow flowers and fruit shape is also different. Pic No. 1 is about the earlier post (*fruit) the second one is new. I think These will help for better ID of the species.

Are these images also of Glochidion zeylanicum var. hirsutum?

This is clearly identifiable as Glochidion zeylanicum var. zeylanicum.

The characters are: pedunculate and/or supra-axillary inflorescences and the unlobed fruits. If all parts are glarous then var. zeylanicum or else if all parts are pubescent/hirstue/tomentose then var. hirsutum.

Then we should take it as var. hirsutum


Does it have both red and yellow flowers?

This is a widespread and highly variable species and such differences in colour of sepals are insignificant.
