This white flowered uncommon shrub was shot near Jeolikot in Uttarakhand (1200m) and identified as Maesa montana. Validation is requested.


This could be Measa argentea.
This species is sometime found in between 800-2500 m along the slopes or may be near to the streams.

Some Maesa sp to me.
Maesa in eFI.


Yes Maesa sp., this shrub is quite common in Pithroragarh district.

Looks like Maesa argentea (Wall.) A. DC. (accepted name) but altitude 

is not matching.
Please validate.
