It could be a Symplocos sp.


Symplocos dryophila C. B. Clarke or

Symplocos sumuntia Buch.-Ham. ex D. Don  ???

For Symplocos dryophila C. B. Clarke, pl. see  illustration at  
For Symplocos sumuntia Buch.-Ham. ex D. Don, pl. see  

To me does not match with anyone, if we go by these images.

Symplocos sumuntia Buch.-Ham. ex D. Don  ??


 

To me looks different from Symplocos sumuntia Buch.-Ham. ex D. Don as per

Appears close to Symplocos pyrifolia

Does it match wit Re: SK466 31 MAR-2017:ID ??
Mid-rib on leaf of S. Pyrifolia is bulging but in this case pressed.

I do not find much difference.

Location: Nagarkot, Bhaktapur
Date: 24 October 2019
Elevation: 2076m.

Another Symplocos !
According to the elevation and phenology, could it be one of
Symplocos glomerata King ex C.B.Clarke
or Symplocos sumuntia Buch.-Ham. ex D.Don ??

 


Pl. check keys in Flora of Bhutan at Symplocos
I think you can decipher them better.
These lead me to S. pyrifolia.  Pl. check.
