Have been considering this to be Argyreia sericea based on flowers in bracteate heads.
The corolla tube seems to be stout and short compared to finding at Lion’s Point … https://groups.google.com/d/msg/indiantreepix/9Iv19_1k1mk/uDp6Fjbtu3sJ
Put below are two sightings; date and place are mentioned next to photos.

may be A. elliptica 


Argyreia sericea  A. sericea leaf are quite larger than this…


Looking at the plants represented at FOI, to me it appears closer to A. sericea

Requesting to please ID this climber captured at SGNP, Mumbai in September 2013.
Is this some Argyreia species?


This could be Argeriya sericea but more images of leaves, bracts etc are required for the id to be conclusive. The leaf partially eaten appears in the background but it is insufficient.


Thank you … for ID… Unfortunately, I do not have any other pictures of this…
