This is a second generation seedling from Ken Cox and Steve Hootman's collection in Arunachal Pradesh at 8500' not far from Nagagg and which keys to Illicium simonsii although the botanists doing the keying added a number of caveats about the limitations of the current key and complexity of the genus.  This is a creamy flowered species which has proved to be too tender for us to grow outside here in the Northwest.    This is an evergreen shrub to 10' or more.  Previously offered as Illicium sp, KCSH#.
