Hmm on looking at this photo it could be Begonia longifolia Blume, seeing as all the flowers are presenting with 3 styles and not the 4 one would expect of Begonia acetosella.

This is B. acetosella – did you try the key?

The photo is not great, but the species is dioecious and has a 4-locular fruit, so is B. acetosella.

… knows the two species better than I do. I would agree with his identification and these two species can be variable in style and tepal number.
