Psydrax dicoccos

 

Canthium species for ID: A medium sized tree.
Leaves opposite coriaceous. Ovate elliptic.
All flowers were dried. One can be observed in the photo. nearly 1cm or so.
Fruits green maturing to black.
This was IDed as some Canthium species by ....
I haven't seen any Canthium species so far. 
Psydrax diococcus (= C.umbellatum), I think.
Psydrax umbellata (Wight) Bridson is an correct name for
Canthium dicoccum var. umbellatum (Wight) Santapau & Merchant
Canthium umbellatum Wight
Canthium umbellulatum Korth.
Plectronia didyma var. umbellata (Wight) Gamble
Plectronia korthalsii K.Schum.
Plectronia umbellata (Wight) K.Schum. 
The var. umbellatum seems to have prominent peduncle as in:
http://www.biotik.org/india/species/c/cantdium/cantdium_12_en.html
So the posted picture could be of the typical var. of Psydrax diococcos Gaertn. (diococcos is said to be the correct spelling! Ref.: Bridson in Kew Bull. 40: 687. 1985.) Syn.: Canthium dicoccum (Gaertn.) Merr.
Tamil names: Koraa ªè£ó£ , Seeppu koraa ê¦ð¢¹ ªè£ó£

Pl find the pictures of Canthium dicoccum and confirm the ID. Photo taken during 2011.

Canthium of Rubiaceae?
I think it is Psydrax dicoccos Gaertn., var. dicoccos (Syn. Canthium didymum (Brandis) Hook.f., Plectronia didyma Benth. & Hook. f. ex Brandis, Canthium dicoccum (Gaertn.) Merr., )
Thanks ...  In fact I also narrowed it to the same species.

Psydrax dicoccos
Family : Rubiaceae
March 2019
Chilkigarh , WB

seems to be matching in general
but the leaves width, does it seem a bit narrower in your specimen from what we have on this page? 

Can anyone please explain specific differences between Psydrax dicoccos and P. umbellata?
Based on the above images, in the absence of fruit, my guess would have been P. umbellata, the species with which I am familiar.
Please, I think the main difference would be location, flowering time, shape and form 
of flowers.
I pulled up 2 links.

thank you ...
I have seen the links you provided. Not at all sure about the plant photographed at Matheran in the second link. I am trying to get detailed botanical descriptions to answer my question.
