Kindly help to ID this small tree

Date -02/03/2011- 09 AM

Location – Assam,

Habitat- Wild Type

Plant Habit- Small Tree growing along streamside

Leaves: 8-12X3-6cm

Inflorescence – as seen in the photos,

Flowers –yellow, White

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.
