Thanks for sharing. Lovely pictures. Will you describe something more about it for those of us who have never heard or seen this. Is it restricted to moist evergreen forest?

Dear Dr. Satish,
B courtallensis is an evergreen/semi-evergreen species, though occasionally it is seen in MDFs also. It is distributed in the southern Western Ghat region.
Leaves are simple, alternate and clustered at the branch tips. The dark crimson flowers are unisexual (ie male and female flowers are separate) and fruit is a capsule. I am told that the fruits are browsed by different deer species.

It is called Moottil thoori /Mutti Thoori in Malayalam which is a slang
for defacating at the base i think.I have seen it at Parambiculam and
Vazhachal area(Kundoor Medu)
