Yes Sir, Nice pics, I am attaching a picture of a pod from the same area.


these all photographs are very interesting, becoz what we get in Maharashtra as B. vahlii are quite different from these photos…

One planted in Mahim Nature Park, Mumbai, if anybody like to see the live specimen.


I think you are right
The plant uploaded by us from Morni and one uploaded by … look different, especially the fruits. The leaves also seem to be smaller in … plant. It would be interesting to know what other climber species are reported from Western Ghats.

We have two reported from our part B. vahlii (leave slightly lobed, leaves very large up to 40 cm long (10-40 cm) and B. corymbosa with smaller leaves (5 cm or less; leaves divided almost to base), on that count our plant fits B. vahlii.


question…
when there is regional variation… even in the seed pods… as in this case apparently…
is there enough Genetic variation that shows up in DNA or RNA fingerprinting?
I dont know enough molecular biology of PLANTS to know the answer…. AND if the fingerprints differ by say 10% or 20% .. is it a new variant or a new species?


Fortunately molecular biology is one field which unites animals and plants. Many areas of manifestation and analysis are similar.

This should be Bauhinia vahlii, a dominating climber, though flowers would have been helpful.


Yes looks like Bauhinia vahlii

Thanks for sharing the beautiful pictures.

Bauhinia vahlii
Climber from Bauhinia genus. I have observed this in Nagzira Vidarbha and from Kanakeshwar near Alibag Maharashtra.


 /wp-content/uploads/2020/10/Involute.jpg

Involute-Geometry in Plants: Involute, an engineer’s perspective of perfectly geometric shapes found in plants. This feature is specific to a particular plant. I am sure many will be able to guess the ID. Can someone brief about the speciality of the tissues at the green inner surface?


I do not have answer to the question … has put forth. But I would like to add few things related to this topic.
It is related to Biomimicry – drawing inspiration from nature for solving our day to day problems. I have been working on an article named ‘Inspiration from Nature’ and this is currently given for publication. I will share once it is published. But in the meanwhile would like to share few things.

Biomimicry would be key word in future engineering where engineers would turn to nature for solutions (In past humans have always been drawing inspiration from nature – birds x aeroplane for example). This is because ‘Mother Nature’ is an extremely good designer. Precise, highly function centric, efficient, frugal and regenerative! These are necessarily important qualities both product designer and his product should possess.

The involute profile … has mentioned is the most important profile in the mechanical world – the profile that actually drives the world efficiently.

There is so much of data available on internet on Biomimicry. There are several more examples – baby carriers x kangaroo pouch, welcro x seed dispersal systems, humanoid robotic arm x human limb, barbed wire x thorns etc.

There are several product design houses that have started bringing biologists to design table. Product Designers – Engineers – Biologists cross-pollinate to design a good product! So in future a product designer with a good aptitude in natural processes and forms will have an edge other.


Both … and … are correct.
Its really strange to understand the designs in any living organism.
While working on orchids I do come to similar situation and keep thinking for days, how could that design be possible on its own.
Question is both how patterns are formed and why patterns are formed?
There are many such questions unanswered in world.
Why it is green on inner surface, to make a guess I would say that its just because it didnt get exposed to sunlight?
By the way, I am a poor guy and I dont know the plant, some one tell me please 😛


Just some more interesting examples came into my mind on biological designs:
Vespa (scooter) – is for hornet
Volkswagen Beetle – Beetle


Does the green spot shows the physiological sensitivity of the region? does the concentration of harmones is more in that particular point? or does it have fluorescence to attract some guests…?
Do the cells in the region contract so that the tendril continues to make a coil?
only questions come to my mind as I don’t know the answer 🙁


Just trying to modify … question:

“Do the cells in the region contract (elongate/divide slowly as compared to progressively outer portions) so that the tendril continues to make a coil?”


I was thinking, why will a tendril attract a guest? Is their any such example in other plant?


If the tendril belongs to Ampelocissus (for e.g.) then it will bear an inflorescence of several small flowers. Since the tendrils are very close to the flowers, I thought they may help in attracting insect pollinators by their fluorescence or UV light.
This is just an ‘hypothesis’. It will be fine even if it is proved wrong… 🙂 If it is proved right, then it will become a ‘theory’ (!).


Wow then lets prove it right :)…….
BTW Ampelocissus flowers are fully open with nectary fully exposed which shines on sunlight. So I think it was enough to attrat insects.
I dont remember, but one of my friend showed a very interesting image of antenna of some insect using some equipment. It gives unique bands on the image which is unique for the species too. I assume using the
same equipment on this tendril can reveal if it has similar or somewhat similar patterns to attract insects. Will ask him how he did it.

These are tendrils of Bauhinia vahlii, an immense climber common in Himalayan foothills. The green inner tissue is sensitive to touch which winds the tendril around support. The grip of these tendril can striangulate branches of large trees and they help this climber to spread to 30 mts length.

Saw these Bauhinia climbers near Jim Corbett Waterfall on 24/3/13.

No flowers or pods when picture was taken.

Kindly id.


If a climber, can be Bauhinia vahlii….


Thanks for a possible id.

I have seen Bauhinia vahlii flowering at Lalbagh, Bangalore.


Yes Bauhinia vahlii (Phanera vahlii). Now it is in flowering with yellowish white flowers in corymbs.


The tendrils are also characteristic. If you have them in any of the pictures…

Bauhinia malabarica I suppose


This is not a tree but a huge climber.

I think it is Bauhinia vahlii, Maloo Creeper.


Thank you … for this as well..

How different is Bauhinia vahlii from Bauhinia glauca?


The images are of Bauhinia vahlii Wight & Arn. whose present accepted name is Phanera vahlii (Wight & Arn.) Benth.
The distribution is as follows:
INDIA: Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, West Bengal, Sikkim, Assam, Meghalaya, Orissa, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Goa, Daman & Diu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu; PAKISTAN, NEPAL.
Bauhinia glauca (Benth.) Benth, whose accepted name is now Phanera glauca Benth. is not found in India. Only Bauhinia glauca subsp. tenuiflora is found. The distribution is as follows:
INDIA: Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Meghalaya; MYANMAR, THAILAND, CHINA, VIETNAM, LAOS, CAMBODIA.
The leaves of B. vahlii are many times larger than B. glauca. In B. vahlii the leaves may be also 45 cm across where in B. glauca may be up to 10 cm across or so. The inflorescence in B. vahlii is much larger than those of B. glauca. In B. vahlii the ovary is densely pubescent whereas glabrous or so in B. glauca. In B. glauca the stigma is obliquely peltate whereas capitate in B. vahlii. The pods are woody and densely pubescent in B. vahlii whereas in B. glauca it is thin valve and glabrous. There are other differences too.

climber for ID – Srisailam Forest – 03022014-NAW1 : Attachments (2). 2 posts by 2 authors.

Kindly identify this climber – tho the pictures are not very clear and i didnt see any flowers.
Photograph taken 2 Feb 2014 in the Srisailam Tiger/ Wildlife Sanctuary. This is a huge woody climber.
the trunk at ground level was more than 15 cm in diameter (no picture). The leaves are double lobed like bauhinia, about 12-18 cm wide, 8-12 cm long. pods velvety upto 7 cm wide and 25 cm long. seed orangish 3 cm by 2 cm. many pods had been chewed into probably by monkeys to eat seeds after peeling the skin. The climber in these pictures had climbed up a tree 7 or 8 metres high.

It may be Bauhinia vahlii


I agree with Bauhinia vahlii, a profuse climber with flat pods…

I am a merely gardener. Looking for some …. and Bauhinia vahlii (red blooming bauhinia creeper) for long but found nowhere.
Though I have contacted some reputed nurseries, they often sell wrong plants.
Will anyone please help me with some seeds of these plants ? I may pay postage etc, if you kindly accept .


Bauhinia vahlii is common in the eastern ghats near Vizag. So much of its leaf is coming to market, from which leaf plates are made.

Yes …, it was a climber.
I am sure of the genus but wanted to confirm species.


It seems to be Bauhinia only.


Yes from me.


Correctly identified. However, its present accepted name is  Phanera vahlii.


I remember my trip to Nagzira way back in April 2004
I have my first encounter with this huge liana there itself with giant leaves and flowers all over.

Bauhinia vahlii Wight & Arn.,- is known as Madapaku, Addaku మాడపాకు, అడ్డాకు (Tel.) not adda chettu, the dried leaves are stitched into round shaped plates by using grass stems, these leaf plates are used as meals plates inhotels and in houses. hence it is known as addaku, because the leaf is often easily folded it is known as maadapaaku madatha means fold ;

Asparagus racemosus is also known as Pilli teegalu

Thank you very much … for help with these names.

What is the name of Bauhinia species which was used stitch leaf plate in Tamil nadu?
I think most of you should know that. I haven’t seen it anywhere till now.

It is not Bauhinia purpurea.


Most probably Phanera vahlii, earlier known by the name Bauhinia vahlii.

I would like to see the image of the plate for further confirmation.
