Great Santhosh ji, great.  The male flower (I am thinking as it is male) image is very correct in googling, but the female flower images and fruit images.... With kind regards, Sam.

Dear Santhosh Sir,
Ok, thank you for the information sharing.
Today I have been there, I didn't see any fruits in the said plant and it is in this way, my concern about how it's propagation....?  So it is remain as endangered!!  With kind regards, Sam.

This is the female infructescence of Miquelia dentata. Only very few people closely seen it, hence few photos available in google search

Dear Santhosh Sir,
Many fruits (size:2×1cm) of M. Dentata, just misunderstood by me. Sharing more images, there is no sunlight, the brightness is automatically adjusted by camera, with kind regards, Sam.
