..., it is not Alpinia, which is coming under the genus Cautleya, fruits and flowers seems to be C. cathcarti.
Pls check
As per WCSP (KEW), Cautleya cathcartii Baker is a syn. of  Cautleya gracilis var. robusta (K.Schum.) Sanjappa, Fl. Ind. Enum., Monocot.: 291 (1989).
But Flora of China & Tropicos, accepts Cautleya cathcartii Baker as an accepted name
This may pl. be clarified as to which we should consider as an accepted name.
