Seems closer to Symplocaceae.


Tried all species of Symplocos but could not get the match ! 


Santalaceae? Helicia?


Sorry … Could not get the match !


A member of Loranthaceae

Possibly a species of Macrosolen


Only one Macrosolen is found listed in Which does not match with the 
description and any Macrosolen image in the net !


I think … may talking of another post of yours on Loranthaceae


I am talking about this image. … you are right, it does not match with any species. It might be turn out to be something new. I have also seen this specimen in Arunachal. I don’t have a specimen though. You should collect a specimen if you can. 


Thank you … I shall do that.

Could you please advise the ID ?


Like I said earlier, its a member of Loranthaceae and probably Macrosolen


OK ! That means other than listed in Nepal ? Was it identified Arunachal species?


Yes, it is Loranthaceae only, I too agree with …


I was looking under the wrong genus.

Its matching well with Helixanthera odorata. It is reported from Nepal.
