This Phyllanthus was shot from Chakrata area.. your help will lead me to identify…

Seems to be the photo of the same species. Let me think.

Leaves look like Flueggea virosa.

The fruits of Flueggea are usually white. This plant seems to be Phyllanthus glaucus Wall. ex Muell.Arg., where the leaves are glaucous beneath. Please check the characters with the description of the species in Flora of India, Vol. 23: p. 478.

Phyllanthus ??

Sir, please add habit too along with habitat, mean here tree or Shrub or herb.  

Shrub. I guess it is distinct in the 5. 

This is nearest to Phyllanthus sikkimensis but the fruits are smooth. Usually they are mildly puberulous and muriculate. Please look at the seeds whether they have any hairs. Please also try to collect he flowers. 

Thank you …! The flowering season is over and need to wait for the next season but did not find any mention of flowering period in ACFPN and FoI. 
By the way there is approx. difference of 1700 m in elevation as compared to the description mentioned in ACPN and FoI. Is it possible due to global warming?
Any possibility of Phyllanthus glaucus Wall. ex Müll.Arg. ??
Phyllanthus glaucus

I think yes, Phyllanthus glaucus is a good match!
