Could you get it identified?

Still this species is unidentified. But my wild guess is Sabia species (Sabiaceae).

Did you check Sabia? Say S. paniculata?

It is not S. paniculata !

I find it close to Sabia paniculata Edgew., as suggested by … as per GBIF – Specimen.

… is right. I got confused with campanulata!
