This Tabernaemontana species was found flowering in large area in Phansad sanctuary near Murud and Roha Konkan.
Shrub(?) 6-8 feet high. Opposite glossy leaves. An Apocyanaceae member. Is it T.alternifolia?

Affirmative Dr. Phadke. Ervatamia alternifolia [previously Tabernaemontana hayneana syn. T.alternifolia] locally called Nag Kuda is a fairly common plant in Phansad W.L.S.
