Is this could be Naregamia species ?
Please check Munronia pinnata.

Please ID this small medicinal shrub with white flowers. Photo was taken in Sri Lanka in Dec 2012.
Nice photos…. Meliaceae?….
seed one that’s showing and the out of focus flower does remind me of a Turraea??
but which one?
Thanks for the ID, it may be Turraea heterophylla!
This is not Turrea because the leaves are compound and indicates 3-foliate.
It is most probably a species of Jasminum occurring in SriLanka.
The exact species could not be identified. It is probably J. humile or J. flexile, There are only a few species with trifoliate leaves. The identity depends on whether the leaves are opposite or alternate, which is not evident in the photograph. Only a Sri Lankan botanist will be able to help.
Looks like Munrovia pinnata. …, are you writing a book!!!
Yes, it is Munronia pinnata (Wall.) Theobald [Syn.: Turraea pinnata Wall.]
This species has highly variable leaves ranging from 3-foliolate to many-foliolate leaves with entire to toothed leaflets.
It is widespread in Asia.

Can you please ID this medicinal herb with white flowers. Photo was taken in a private property in Dec 2012 in Sri Lanka.
Munrovia pinnata. Rare and endangered in the wild because of over-exploitation for its medicinal value. This is not the wild cultivar.
