Brugmansia relative?

Brookfield, CT

I photographed this plant at the Belize Botanical Garden. It is similar to a Brugmansia, but the flower is narrower and the leaves are more leathery, shiny and opposite. It had very little fragrance. The plant was growing as an understory shrub in a forested area. Does anyone recognize this plant? I have also posted in the plant ID forum.

Here are the photos of the Brugmansia look-alike that should have accompanied my previous post

I have seeds from this one, that I got a couple of years ago and never planted, time tends to get away from me. Hopefully soon and they are still good.

Rhapsody, thank you for the ID. Danasplants, I did not bring back any seeds. I didn't want to risk getting thrown in jail and tortured by APHIS/PPQ. Brookfield is near Danbury. I am amazed by the similarity to brugmansia, but the two are not even in the same family.

I bought this plant very tropical and expensive but worth it
