Opposite (bipinnately?) compound

Asked November 18, 2015, 7:16 PM EST

I found this plant in the Klamath Mountains, Northern California. Can't find a correct ID for it. Closest thing I found is coffee tree, but it's opposite, not alternate. What could it be?

I have looked through numerous guides and keys, and can't find a definite i.d. for these leaves. Possibly Calycanthus occidentalis, but I don't really think so. Flowers or fruit would help a lot. I suggest you take it to the local Extension office in Humboldt county, where they may be able to put you in touch with a local native plants expert.
