I had seen this large woody climber on the way to Yana from Vibhuti water
Falls (Karnataka).  
I could not spot any flowers, fruits were globuse and greenish coloured.
Date/Time: 20-01-2011 / 12:30PM
Location: On the trek route to Yana from Vibhuti water Falls.
Habitat: Wild
Plant Habit: Climber.

But, i am sure that this plant is NOT Coscinium fenestratum 🙁


Pl see this link for C.fenestratum:
http://scialert.net/fulltext/?doi=jps.2008.133.145&org=10
the fruits could be of a Vitaceae or some other Menispermaceae member.
Leaves in the pictures belong to Piper species.


This is Anamirta cocculus, I presume. But the leaves represents a Piper species. This is a clear example of ambiguity while taking photographs. 


As …. pointed out the “fruits” belong to, most probably, Menispermaceae family but I am wondering about the leaves.
Are you sure that you have got the right leaves?
The leaves seems to be of Piper sp.
Leaves of  Menispermaceae liana use to be in the canopy and sometimes they drupe down. This seems to be a cauliflory.
Please check Anamirta sp of Menispermaceae.
