Habit : Wild
Machilus odoratissima Nees ??
Looks different from images at http://manipurforestflora.co.in/specimen/view/308#prettyPhoto
Can it be Persea americana Mill. as per images herein ?
I guess it is Lauraceae ! May be Litsea or Persia !
Pl. check with images at Litsea monopetala (Roxb.) Pers.
I am also thinking this is Litsea monopetala
It is not !
it could be litsea, need to go through local floras,
Check once with Combretaceae
Did not find a real match.
Did you try Beilschmeidia?
Not satisfied with L. monopetala. It has broad leaf with ovate apex. Here Leaf and fruit looks different.
Beilschmiedia brandisii Hook.f. ??
I feel that this is near B. sikkimensis.
I think fruit attachment takes me more towards Litsea.
There are many species listed in the Checklist of Nepal.
In that case please consult specialists in Litsea such as Drs. R. Kr. Singh and A. J. Robi.
Can it be Alseodaphne species as per fruit attachment as at Request for Identifying a native tree species ?
Does not look like !
