Kindly identify this plant growing in Goa. Looks like an Apocynaceae member?

Thanks, …  Pl. Post other images, if you have. 


Quisqualis? Pl. Check the spelling. 


Kopsia fruticosa?……


Looks like Kopsia fruticosa. Was trying to find out if it has latex. Could not confirm though. Thank you …


Thank you … Looks very much like Kopsia fruticosa. I was trying to find out if it has latex like all the other Apocynaceae. Could not confirm though.

Pl check for Kopsia species. This is only a suggestion. I am not sure as it is not possible to check all  the characters.

Thank you … It’s Kopsia fruticosa


…, can you suggest me the place where to “check the characters”.
