Maesa species (M. indica)?- a guess.
I think matches your other posts of the same species as below:
Nepali Names : बिलौनी Bilaunee / कनिगे Kanige / थिङ्के Thinke
Maesa species (M. indica) ?- a guess
Could it be Maesa indica (Roxb.) A. DC. ??
But it is not listed in Nepal I guess. No idea if there is any
Sorting them based on the keys I provided from Flora of China will be the best way.
In the basis of picture shot in Nepal I guess it is Maesa montana A. DC. and Syn : Maesa indica Wall. ex C. B. Clarke. and looks like description is also matching.
Request for further opinion.
I think there are some taxonomic issues in Flora of Nepal.
As per Catalogue of life, Baeobotrys indica Roxb. and Maesa elongata (A. DC.) Mez, both are syn. of Maesa indica (Roxb.) A. DC.
Flora of China neither give any such name nor any distribution for Maesa montana A. de Candolle in Nepal.
I don’t know how I am going to solve this puzzle.
If you use the key in Flora of China for id, as I have given you.
Please can someone id this tree.
