Mycetia longifolia

Mycetia longifolia (Wall.) Kuntze, Revis. Gen. Pl. 1: 289 1891. (syn: Adenosacme longifolia Wall. [Invalid]; Adenosacme longifolia (Wall.) Hook. f.; Rondeletia longifolia Wall.; Wendlandia longifolia (Wall.) DC.);

Nepal to China (S. Yunnan) and Pen. Malaysia as per WCSP;

Assam; Bangladesh; China South-Central; East Himalaya; Malaya; Myanmar; Nepal; Philippines; Tibet; Vietnam as per Catalogue of life;

This should be Mycetia longifolia (Wall.) Kuntze as per details and references herein.
Key difference is that it is having 'At least some calyx limbs and sometimes also bracts bearing few to numerous marginal glands on short to well-developed flexuous stipes' as per keys in Flora of China. This you can clearly see here.
It is lacking in Mycetia nepalensis H.Hara. Pl. see specimens at GBIF

I think this is Mycetia longifolia.


Please suggest identification for this shrub, recorded from Tippi, Arunachal Pradesh.
This superficially looks to be from Rubiaceae
Pl. check comparative images at Gesneriaceae.
An earlier input on eFI points to Mycetia longifolia... Rubiaceae
I think I have seen a similar plant in efi under Gesneriaceae
I am referring to : https://sites.google.com/site/efloraofindia/species/m---z/r/rubiaceae/mycetia/mycetia-longifolia
I agree with you as per images under Mycetia longifolia

Mycetia nepalensis H.Hara : 13 posts by 2 authors. 9 images- 6 to 7 mb each.
Location: Chalnakhel, Pharping
Date: 28 June 2020
Elevation: 1500 m.
Habitat: Wild

This should be Mycetia longifolia (Wall.) Kuntze as per details and references herein.
Key difference is that it is having 'At least some calyx limbs and sometimes also bracts bearing few to numerous marginal glands on short to well-developed flexuous stipes' as per keys in Flora of China. This you can clearly see here.
It is lacking in Mycetia nepalensis H.Hara. Pl. see specimens at GBIF 

Also have a look at Mycetia stipulata (Hook. f.) Kuntze as I have not checked it.

Also looks different from Mycetia stipulata as per GBIF Specimen 1 and Specimen 2
