Myrsine sp.?

I also thought of Myrsinaceae, but I am not finding any match.

Litsea sps. by any chance?

Thanks, … I don’t think matches with fruits and flowers of Litsea as per comparative images herein.

Neither genus Litsea nor family Lauraceae. By seeing the flowers characters, it may be a member of family Primulaceae (Myrsinaceae).

Fruit size and shape leads to Myrsine sp.

I think fruiting image may be from some other tree, than those of flowering images.

Ilex sp

Your plant seems to be Ilex sp.

I tried checking all the species listed at Ilex as per BSI Flora of India, with distribution in Assam.

The Closest I can reach is Ilex venulosa Hook.f. var. simplicifrons as per Flora of ChinaPOWO and GBIF specimens from India.
But I am uncertain.
