What a sweet coincidence!! This is nothing but 'Embelia arunachalensis' (Myrsinaceae) described by me for the first time and published in the Journal of Japanese Botany.

U can refer to the following citation:
Choudhary, R.K., R.C. Srivastava & A.K. Das. 2009. A new species of Embelia Burm. f. from Arunachal Pradesh (India). In Journal of Japanese Botany 84 (6)-338-341.
Feels good to announce. A member of efloraofindia Dr. Ritesh Choudhary is the author of this species. A real honour for the group. Congratulations ... for finding this new species and thanks for introducing this to us. Thanks ... for showing it to us.
Thanks a lot sir for your kind words that touched my sentiments. I am really happy to be a part of this esteemed group.
Thanx a lot to Respected ... for your appreciation. Even I didn't get this much appreciation the day I published this new species. Thanx to all once again. "Long Live efloraofindia group."
Congrats ..., its really a wonderful and unique plant. Looks totally different from other species of Embelia. Please upload pictures of fruits also if you have. Hundreds of tonnes of fruits of different species of Embelia (E. ribes, E. tsjeriam-cottam, as well as other spp of Myrsinaceae) are traded (in the name of Baibrang/Vaividang) in India each year. A popular medicinal plant group. 
You may like to share any observations from the locality.
Thanks ... for the nice photos of this rare species.
This species has recently described by Dr. Ritesh K. Chowdhery as Embelia Arunachalensis in J. Japan Bot.
Dr. D.B. Deb has proposed a new species Embelia daphlaensis (in 1962) but for unknown reasons probably he did not publish. Two annotated para types by D.B. Deb are in ASSAM.
