Actinodaphne sikkimensis Meisn. ??

Looks different from images at Actinodaphne sikkimensis
May be some Neolitsea/ Litsea species as per comparative images herein. 

Does not look matching with both sp. and all listed in ACFPN whichever images available in the net.
Fruits are in a bunch of more than 10, all facing upwards and tapering at the end and almost pointed.

Images are not of Actinodaphne sikkimensis, It is Litsea species. Flowers are lacking but very near to Litsea chartacea (Wall. ex Nees) Hook.f.

Thank you …, Yes it matches I guess. Measurement of drupe is also matching.
