Costa Rica...in the grounds of the hotel ..Monteverde.
Help with id please.
Reminds me of the way Sideroxylon flowers cluster. Or perhaps a Chrysophyllum.
Many thanks for your suggestions teague.
I have had a look at both but am unable to find a match.
I think the hunt goes on.
I am being told it is Casearia (Salicaceae). Not a lot of photos online unfortunately.
Thank you teague for this suggestion.
Trouble is my plant has just 5 stamen..(5 petals)..see close up below.
All the Casearia flowers on line have multiple stamens.

Sorry I think the search goes on.
Update......Latest.....Hot of the forum!
On another forum I have just been told by GreenTara18".. from Russia, Moscow that it is Acnistus arborescens.
It looks a perfect match...and is found in Costa Rica.

I am happy to have it solved!
Quite the pull on that one, congrats to it being solved and the solver.
Darn, I was looking at Solanaceae, but didn't come up with that one.
I am thrilled that you were trying to id this for me.
I have the feeling that GreenTara18".. from Russia, Moscow is another Lila, or Tyrlych or Ron.
I never even thought of Solanaceae.....Duh!
Just wish I could remember the names..remember what plants look like and often exactly where I have seen them...but names...err no chance.
Please can you try the 5 red berries.
That is bugging me.
