Indian species of Ipomoea : 9 posts by 7 authors.
Recent taxonomy of Convolvulaceae largely revolves around pollen grains and dehiscence if fruits, in addition to usual features of corolla shape, styles and stigma. This is how the closely related genera once placed under Ipomoea are segregated:
Merremia: Pollen smooth, porate; capsule opening irregularly or by 4-valves.
Operculina: Pollen smooth, porate; capsule circumscissile.
Ipomoea: Pollen spinose, colpate; fruit dry capsule usually opening by 4 valves; corolla usually glabrous outside; calyx slightly enlarged in fruit.
Stictocardia: Pollen spinose, colpate; fruit dry capsule splitting irregularly; calyx greatly enlarged enclosing the fruit.
Rivea: Pollen spinose, colpate; fruit indehiscent; corolla pubescent outside; corolla salverform; stamens attached near middle of the tube; fruits dry.
Argyreia: Pollen spinose, colpate; fruit indehiscent; corolla pubescent outside; corolla funnel-shaped; stamens attached below middle of the tube; fruits usually fleshy or leathery.
Perhaps more as we finalize our list.

I have updated eFI (efloraofindia) page on Argyreia
Attempts have been made to incorporate most of the species available in India & nearby areas with details & keys directly or through links as far as possible. It’s quite possible that there may be some discrepancy in the accepted names & synonyms taken from other links.
Species discussed so far in efloraofindia are given at the bottom of the page in the form of links against Subpages. On clicking them one can see all the details.
If someone can provide complete list of Indian species with source references it will be wonderful.
Any comments/ corrections are welcome.

If you find any incorrect identification, pl. let us know. If anybody can send images of other species of this genera (for incorporation in the website), if any, it will be really nice.
