Location: Nagarkot , Nepal
Altitude:  6400 ft.

May be some streptopus sp. (Liliaceae).


I am unsure. Have doubts about his being a Streptopus – the foliage does not seem to fit.
Pity cannot see the base of the leaves – these are clasping in this genus.
The altitude is questionable as well.  Not known below 2500m.
Needs further checking.  Fruit immature.
The pedicels are slender in Streptopus.  Kew herbarium images not high resolution whilst non available yet on Edinburgh site (which had much higher resolution images). 

I guess it looks like matching with Streptopus simplex D.Don (accepted name) out of 2 Streptopus listed in Nepal as per the following link as well altitude and the fruiting season also matching.
Your opinion please.

Looks different from images at
