Psychotria,


Any keys, …?
Leaves appear closer to your images at Psychotria monticola Kurz



As the keys are mainly based on the shape of the pyrene (with seeds inside).
Let us keep it as Psychotria monticola only until we have more details and pyrene.

I checked all the species listed from your book.
This appears close to Psychotria silhetensis Hook.f. as per POWO specimens- one and two.
