I think it is Knema sp. [Myristicaceae]. May be K. tenuinervia.

For id you can consult –   Dipanwita BANIK and Priyankush Protim BORA. 2016. A taxonomic study on the diversity of Indian Knema Lour. (Myristicaceae). Taiwania 61(2): 141‒158.

My guess would be Knema sp., possibly Knema attenuata..

Pl. check GBIF for Knema tenuinervia and details at Knema attenuata (Hook.f. & Th.) Warb. as per suggestion by …
Three species may be recorded in your area as per Flora of China:
More species may be available in your area as per details in the following publication.

I think you should collect flowering and fruiting images along with backside of the leaves.

Seems Nothopegia sp.
