Argyreia strigosa: Seen this Climber at CBD Hills.
Can somebody provide the key characters of the genus Argyreia and Ipomea, which help in differentiation.
The Plant list does not show this species as per the following link:
GRIN also doesn’t show it.
What can be the possible reasons ?
However, IPNI has a record on it as per the link

Sending a photo of Morning Glory seen on the way to Sunset Point (near Dodhani) Matheran.
looks like some Argyreia sp.
Flower looks like Ipomoea pes-tigridis
… now that you said it, …, it looks like Ipomoea pes-tigridis to me too.
It doesn’t look like I. pes-tigridis to me because the leaves not palmately lobed (as major portion of leaf seen in the pic), bracts not foliaceous and flowers not white.
By the way, I. pes-tigridis has multiple varieties.
this is not
I don’t know at this point what the species in question is but I would opine that it is not any type of Convolvulus because the stigma is visible and not of the Convolvulus type… not Ipomoea pes-tigridis.
I just located an older thread here

Attaching three images of a Ipomoea species. Please identify if you can.
Pl. check comparative images at
Does not appear to match with any species as per comparative images at Argyreia
Could it be so.e Argyria spp.
This is Argyreia capitiformis (Poir.) Ooststr. (synonym Argyreia capitata Choisy).
Need help with this annual edible ‘budhware ka patta’ : 8 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (2)- 1 mb each.
Has milky latex. Annual climber whose leaves are eaten like arvi leaves: rolled in besan, steamed and fried. Tastes like fish.
Share some more information like Habit and flowers if possible
I tried looking at comparative images at Apocynaceae, but could not find a match.
I think more details are required.
Not able to find any result on the internet with such a name.
The leaf reminds of several genera – Ipomoea, Argyreia, Dioscorea, but I am not confident.
I think maybe some Ipomoea species like Ipomoea aquatica Forssk.
Don’t you have a habit image as you stated it to be having buds?
Finally the flowers have arrived! I’ve attached the habit image as well.
Is this commonly known to be edible?
