Request for id for creeper with pod : 5 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (2)

Please find attached images of a peculier pod having the stalk in the centre of the pod and looks like cow’s horn but very slender.
Id please.

This climber is perhaps Aganosma, most probably (A. cymosa) belonging the family Apocynaceae. These are two follicles attached on a common stalk.


The picture shows Follicle of an Asclepiadaceae. [Not pods]. Aganosma cymosa leaves have been used in plant raw drug trade in Madurai and Dindugal dist of TN.


I agree with … for Aganosma cymosa follicles

Can you post habit photo ? 

Does not match with images at Ichnocarpus frutescens (L.) W.T.Aiton 

If not a tree as mentioned, this can be Aganosma cymosa

It is Aganosma dichotoma


I had a doubt. That’s why I asked for a habit photo. Thanks … for the ID.


Sorry for the late reply… Here is the habitat pic, the plant is about 6 mtr away from this stream. It is ever green forest. I have included two more pics for your review.
Attachments (3)- around 700 kb each. 

Yes it is definitely Aganosma dichotoma which is abundant in our area, based on several edaphic factors, climate the sepal colour and size of flowers vary. 

Yes. I agree with … for the species.

I will go with … initial id of Aganosma cymosa var. elegans as per images and details herein compared to Aganosma dichotoma

Yes you are correct; Aganosma dichotama the sepals are pinkish-red; corolla tube longer than than the lobes; cymes are mostly divaricate. thank you for correcting me
