Any idea about the family ?
A member of Olacaceae, could be a species of Olax
Thank you …!
Only one Olax, Olax nana Wall. ex Benth. is listed in Nepal
but did not find any image in Google for matching however
another Olacaceae, Schoepfia fragrans Wall. seems
matching. Please compare as per the links and advise
confirm by myself.
