Mussaenda .... ????

Please ignore image CSC_0006.JPG
Pl check 

I did check before. By the way 3 Mussaenda sp are found 
in the Kathmandu Valley: M. macrophylla, M. roxburghii and 
M. treutleri.
Could it be M. treutleri ??

Does not match with images at Mussaenda macrophylla (only species available in efi from three pointed out by you)

What about any one sp. as listed in Nepal as below:

Try to check on the net. Sepals are quite diagnostic in this genus. 
Looks like Mussaenda roxburghii 

Thank you ...! Mussaenda roxburghii Hook.f.
