You have earlier posted it and it is placed at Medinilla rubicunda (Jack) Blume

Is there any other species in this genus over there?
To me appears OK as per ResearchGate & Semantic scholar and POWO specimen.

Any other species reported from there ? If so, any keys?

So there seems to be only one species.

So it is Medinilla rubicunda (Jack) Blume (syn: Medinnilla erythrophylla)
