    This would appear to be Toricellia tiliifolia.
    However, there is very little on www and only a few pics.
    Has anyone got access to more learned sites/ books that would confirm if we are correct or not?

    Taken on the way between Gantok and Pelling. Sikkim. India.
    Many thanks

    Your ID would seem to be borne out by TROPICOS, although all they've got is the line drawing from Flora of China.

    Compare.

    Looks identical to the pic in Polunin & Stainton.

    Many thanks lorax and paion.
    Doesn't seem a very common tree.
    Good to see it.
