I kindly request you to share the ams of the tree as per the two photographs.
Observed on the higher reaches of Chinnar, Tamil Nadu.
Its a magnet for the butterflies! there were more than about 500 butterflies in the area going crazy on the nectar.
Small whitish flowers. medium height of tree.
It looks to me a species of Psychotria.
Appreciate your valuable time and help.
So butterflies really get attracted to the flowers of this tree.
Pl. check with images at Psychotria flavida Talbot

Though it looks like Psychotria it is not conclusive. The photographs are not helpful to see key characters as it cant be zoomed in.
