Shrub for id from Chakrata:: NS June 29 : 7 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (4).  
This unarmed shrub, with pinkish buds and white flowers was recorded from Chakrata area in Uttrakhand, this is fairly common in the area..
Please help to conclude id..
I think Daphne mucronata
Thanks Sir, I was also considering this a species of Daphne..
The ID may need reconsideration as it has paired flowers, a feature of Caprifoliaceae. It may be in Lonicera genus. More recently actinomorphic flowered Lonicera are separated as Devendraea by Pusalkar (2011).
It can be Lonicera angustifolia- fuits bare rounded red, edible sweet in taste.
Thanks ..., your considerations are right, even the species level id given by ... is quite convincing.. though I could not observe any berries in the field..
Thanks a lot ... for giving correct ID. It surely is Lonicera (angustifolia perhaps) with its half fused ovaries and paired flowers.
Thanks again. Thanks ... for finding this species.

Key to the species. Attachments (1)
Nice upload. Beautiful Lonicera with narrow leaves.
All Lonicera with actinomorphic flowers are now placed in a newly carved (carved from Lonicera s.l.) genus Devendraea Pusalkar.
It is now D. angustifolia (Wall. ex DC.) Pusalkar
Please compare with:
D.angustifolia in eFI.
Thank you, ... for the new information to me. I was not aware of this fact that L. angustifolia is now Devendraea angustifolia.
I usually check at "The Plant List" where L.angustifolia is an accepted name.
The uploads by ... appears slightly different in leaf morphology.
So, I'll upload my all Lonicera types one by one for more clarification to me. I am a newcomer in Plant Taxonomy.
From my old collection. Attachments (2)

Is it Lonicera parvifolia??

More closer to L.angustifolia
http://www.asianflora.com/Caprifoliaceae/Lonicera-angustifolia.htm

Thank you, ... I have seen both these plants. They look quite different from each others. It means, high degree of variation occurs in L. angustifolia.
I'll try to post comparative photographs of both some day.

Leaves were small in this species. This species has been listed in FLORA OF SIRMAUR DISTRICT by KAUR AND SHARMA.
I think images are closer to images at Lonicera obovata rather than those at Devendraea myrtillus

Sorry, I mean to say images are closer to images at Devendraea angustifolia rather than those at Devendraea myrtillus

Lonicera myrtillus ABMAY02/2018 : 6 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (12)
I had photographed the fruits on this shrub in 2016 and had missed the flowers. Now that I have seen and photographed the flowers, I think this shrub is Lonicera myrtillus. Please advise.
Lonicera myrtillus
Near Gallu Temple, Dharamshala, HP
2000m approx.
25-29 April 2018 (flowers)
30 May 2016 (fruit)
The flowers have no aroma and I have found only one shrub so far. Is it uncommon at this elevation?

I think, it should be Lonicera angustifolia  

Thank you ... Do you remember if the flowers had any aroma? The flowers on our plant had no discernible aroma.
Should we consider this now as Davendraea angustifolia or Lonicera angustifolia?

Pl. see
