I am not yet proficient in Phoebe and Machilus

Appears close to images at Machilus
What are the keys?

I think close to images and details at Machilus macranthus (= Persea glaucescens (Nees) D.G.Long) herein and as per keys above.

I could not find any specimens of Persea globularia and Machilus minutiflora (H.W.Li) L.Li, J.Li & H.W.Li in GBIF.
