Chloranthus species ?;



unided herb from Arunachal Pradesh: A common herb in the forest floor in subtropical forests of Namdapha. Locals fry the young leaves of this plant and eat it. They say that this plant cures digestive problems. Was wondering if anybody could identify this for me.

Photographed in Namdapha NP, 600 m asl.

From the leaves it looks like a species of Chloranthus (Chloranthaceae). But the fruit like structure is something unfamiliar. is that really a reproductive body?

No it is not the reproductive body. It has small white juicy berries. Will post photos soon.
