I have no idea about the sp. but pictures are very beautiful. 

I am not sure what it is, but just remembered, once … had shared some what similar photographs of the fruits of some clerodendrum sp.

That looks like a pentalocular ovary with single ovule in each

How about Ochna obtusata???

I second … It may be some species of Ochna

Any chance of Campylospermum serratum (Gaertn.) Bittrich & M.C.E.Amaral ??

Looks different from images at Gomphia serrata

I checked all species listed under Ochnaceae in FoPI, but it looks different.
