I think Luculia pinceana Hook. (Rubiaceae)


Plenty of this flowering shrubs have been seen in South Sikkim. I tried to get the ID from Stainton & Polunin’s ‘Flowers of the Himalaya’.
Possibly it is Luculia gratissima. Experts may kindly comment.


Date: 16th October.2011
Location: Lava-Algarah road. (5000feet) Darjeeling district. WB

Please help to identify this flower

I think Luculia sp. (Rubiaceae family).

I think may be Luculia pinceana Hook. as per images herein.
