    I am trying to place this old photograph I made at home (most probably in the bouquet arrangement, don't remember details). I keyed it to Oleaceae, not sure about this. Could this be a kind of Forestiera. I cannot match it to a species, though.

    Thanks Ron! Buxaceae was missing from my family key. I need look for some other, more complete key available on the web.
    Colby College key (http://www.colby.edu/info.tech/BI211/Bio211.html) looks promising, but I stumbled even with it. I could not reliably count stamens and styles from the photograph. :)))
