No idea as such. could it be Solanaceae ??

It reminds me of Nicandra and Solandra …..I cd go no further. Looked into Hyoscyamus and Atropa, but of no avail.

Tried all Solanacae but no luck !

six petalled fused, six flattened anthers is are search term

Campanulaceae ? Campanulastrum ?

No match …!

Seems to Boraginaceae …, once check local floras,

No match …!

Recently saw images of Lepistemon intermedius (Convolvulaceae) from Taiwan. Flower structure shows a lot of resemblance. I tried for described species in the Genus but could not find a match. I guess learned members could give it a try. Since everything else is not working …

not solanaceae, not boraginaceae, the stigma is very characteristic

I also feel that this is a member of Campanulaceae

Neither Campanulaceae !

The plant looks like convolvulaceae, but the petals, etc are six in number; some Merremia species have expanded stigmas; the stigmas resemble the expanded stigmas of Garcinia, but they are trees and shrubs, with opposite leaves, it is not, ; hence unable to decide, better search in Convolvulaceae

Not matching to any as suggested !

if the flower is still around. at lease one of the flowers could be dissected?

It may be some species of Cyclocodon in Campanulaceae.

Great … Similarity of the stigma looks promising. now for the hunt thru the suggested territory

What a find …!  Cyclocodon lancifolius (Roxb.) Kurz syn : Codonopsis lancifolia (Roxb.) Moeliono is listed in Nepal. And another one Cyclocodon parviflorus Hook.f. & Thomson and  / or Codonopsis parviflora Wall. ex A.DC. is found  but

not listed in Nepal. Looking at the net images I could not decide the ID however, it looks like matching !

There are some other images as well.

After checking keys in Flora of China, I think it should be C. lancifolius only as per FOC illustration and as per GBIF, link and Checklist of Nepal
