ID Please-3:  Please help with the ID of this herb photographed at Sanjay Gandhi National Park on 4th July ’10.


This is Ampelocissus latifolia [Wild Grapes].


… oh yes, it must be A. latifolia just as … puts it. Chances of Urena (erect herb) looks totally zero. However, never had the luck to encounter A. latifolia with sinuate leaves, have always seen them lobed !!!


Incase you still have any doubts, here are some of my photographs taken last week at my farm to show the different shapes of Wild Grape leaves.


We have discussed it last year during monsoon days but I am not getting the link. Here is my picture. http://www.discoverlife.org/mp/20p?see=I_PAO6737&res=640


Here are my pics of A latifolia from Karnal

Yeoor Hills after pre monsoon showers for wild flowers. : Mixed thread- 1 correct image. 5 posts by 5 authors.
After the pre monsoon showers the Forest Spider Lily blooms in the hills of Yeoor, SGNP Thane. These flowers bloom first before the leafs. I was planning for many years to see this unique phenomenon and it happened this year. Along with these Lilies the Yellow Ground Star aka Kali Musali flowers too had come up at the base of the shoots. Submitting the pictures for correct ID too.

Another climber seen at SGNP, Mumbai on 29/7/13 at the Silonda Trail, during TAW.

Id please.


It may be Ampelocissus latifolia.
Not sure, though.


Thanks for a possible id.
I could locate one more picture with fruits. Hope it helps.
We were shown all the flora with names, I’m getting a bit confused with the ids.


Thanks for the fruit picture. I did not get the point in your words “…We were shown all the flora with names…”
I agree with … in calling it as ‘wild grape’.
Both Vitis and Ampelocissus are commonly called wild grapes and the differences lie in the flowers and seeds.
In the absence of these features, I can only guess that it may be Ampelocissus latifolia from the appearance of leaves and fruits.
Let’s wait for more comments from members possibly with affirmative ID. Sorry if I have caused any confusion :


This is Ampelocissus latifolia. Please check these links
Will send my photographs of the fruit later [if required].


My photographs of the fruit (6).


Thanks … for confirming the id and thanks for supportive and nice pictures as well.

I meant I had gone to this National Park in Mumbai along with TAW Team (Tree Appreciation Walk), there we were shown all the flora along the Silonda Trail. But the leaves & fruits (which did not belong to those leaves) got me confused. On checking my data, I found it was already correctly identified earlier. I do have a picture of the flowers as well. Will add it.


I could locate a picture of the flowers. Adding the same.

This picture was shot during our August 2013 Chakrata Tour. Very small flowers look not so beautiful on this wine of Ampelocissus latifolia (Wild Grape). When a Macro shot was taken, the picture was very good looking. I am sharing the close up of inflorescence of this plant as My Picture of the year 2013.


Lovely picture with great details!

Yes, beautiful picture from a lovely place…. on way to Indrali Falls, we started to but never reached…


Yes, really nice Macro shot. Very clear…

Requesting to please ID these fruits captured in Shilondha, SGNP, Mumbai in June 2014.
Unfortunately, this is the only pic I have.
Is this enough to ID?


These are raw Wild Grapes [Ampelocissus latifolia]. Please check these links.

Sharing some images of the buds & the flowers of Ampelocissus latifolia.
Photographed last week (6.7.15) on Madh Hill, North Mumbai.

Fruit for Id- ID25052017SH3 : 7 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (4)
Fruit for Id pl. This bunch was on a very long pinkish coloured creeper. By any chance these are wild grapes ? Ampelocissus latifolia) ?

Location – Mumbai (near one of the mangroves)
Date – 14.05.2017


Ampelocissus latifolia (Roxb.) Planch. [Vitaceae]. The photograph labelled “Copy of New Album 357.jpg” is of the flowers and the other three pictures are of the buds.


This creeper was spread everywhere on the ground and a tree. Saw some new leaf growth near it. Are these the leaves of same creeper or some other plant ? Could not make out as lot of mix-up on the ground….


The mature as well as the young leaves of Ampelocissus latifolia are altogether different from those in your photograph. The leaves in your picture remind me of Ipomoea mauritiana Jacq. [Convolvulaceae].

Looks like Ampelocissus latifolia, but fruit bunches are smaller. 

leaf may be similar
 but I cant be totally sure
and as … said, number of berries is different


I guess the ID is correct !

Ampelocissus latifolia  (Roxb.) Planch.

Dear friends,
I believe these leaves belong to Ampelocissus latifolia, … though normally I have been seeing lobed/ sinuate; rarely have I come across entire leaf. Here we do see some hints of angles. Please validate the ID. There were no flowers / fruits at this time. 


Appears close as per Ampelocissus latifolia 


Yes I agree ! 

Leaves can be in highly dissected form too ! 
A typical feature is, 5 main veins emerge where petiole ends, and radiate, making 4 nearly equal angles …
and the reach up to the 5 angles/corners of leaf lamina.

Common sight in Surat ! 


I  visited the page of Ampelocissus (latifolia Roxb.) in EFI , found Panisaru, Tiniangulia as vernacular name in Odia, which is to be corrected. I am attaching pages from 3 major books 

1). THE FLORA OF ORISSA 1994 publ.
Odia names-Pani kacha, Paninoha, Paniamoha, Dibroi, Kanjianoi.
2). UDVIDA SANGRAHA – Prof MalyaKumar Misra1998publ.
Odia names-Kanjianai, Pani Lahi, Kanjinai, Panikachha.
3). FLORAL DIVERSITY OF NANDANKANA WILD LIFE SANCTUARY2012 Publ.
Odia names-Pani Kacha, Kanjianoi.
And Sir, odia word Pani saru is for Lasia spinosa (L.) Thw, Araceae – page also attached of Prof Malay K Misra
Sir, I request you to peruse the above & insert correct Odia names for Ampelocissus latifolia (Roxb.),


Thanks very very much, … 
I will incorporate the names in my notes in some time from now.
May I request you to please provide the names: dibroi, kanjianoi, pani kacha, pani lahi, paniamoha, paninoha in Odia script. Otherwise adding them with just Roman spellings gives rise to ambiguous pronunciations. 
…, I heavily depend on an online dictionary – Purnnachandra Ordia Bhashakosha by Praharaj, G.C. It is authentic, though the scientific names are most often found wrongly spelled.
The name is shared among
1) some species of Colocasia, 
2) Lasia heterophylla (Roxb.) Schott … synonym of Lasia spinosa (L.) Thwaites
3) Vitis latifolia Roxb. … synonym of Ampelocissus latifolia (Roxb.) Planch.
The name is shared among
1) Vitis latifolia Roxb. … synonym of Ampelocissus latifolia (Roxb.) Planch.
2) Vitis pedata (Lam.) Wallich ex Wight … synonym of Cayratia pedata (Lam.) Gagnep.
3) Adiantum lunulatum Burm. f.
Let me know, whether you still think the above names are incorrectly referred to Ampelocissus latifolia (Roxb.) Planch.

Thank you very very much …, for the names in Odia script.

I will update the names in eFI site shortly.


Thank you very much … for the clarification.


Sir, namaskar. Sorry to say that I am not acquainted with typing both, so Odia script words (5nos) sent earlier as desired by you, The Pirnachandra bhasakosa, Sir, no doubt a nice publication but related to Odia literature & the 3 publications are taxonomical,


Whether the publication is inclined towards literature or taxonomy, associating vernacular names to botanical names, requires the same study/ research.

I will retain the names listed in dictionary, unless someone authoritatively clarifies ପାଣିସାରୁ panisaru and ତିନି ଆଙ୍ଗୁଳିଆ tini angulia are incorrectly entered as names of Vitis latifolia syn. of Ampelocissus latifolia

Vitis parvifolia Roxb. ??

Was it wild ?
I do not think it to be Vitis parvifolia Roxb. as per keys in Flora of Pakistan. 

On further checking, I think it appears more closer to Ampelocissus latifolia (Roxb.) Planch. as per comparative images at Ampelocissus
