You are correct about some of the images. However if check the eflora image and some herbarium sheets in gbif, they seem to match.
**Some herbarium sheets collated in gbif seem to be misidentified!!
Thanks, ... We do not have any images of Phlogacanthus pubinervius in efi so far.

It is Phlogacanthus thyrsiformis
I do not think matches with images at Phlogacanthus thyrsiformis (Roxb. ex Hardw.) Mabb. as inflorescence is axillary in your plant.
Pl. check with images at Phlogacanthus pubinervius T. Anderson 
I think it's P. pubinervius, but color of stem is different ?
