Please help to identify this climber flowering & fruiting in Silonda Trail at SGNP (Borivali National Park), Mumbai in wild. Leaves were not seen and the pictures has been taken today (9.4.13).


Looks like some Vitaceae sp. (Cissus sp..) ?


By now there may be a few leaves which would help in identification. It is most likely a Cissus sp.


Today (24.4.13) I took the pictures (3) of the climber with leaves, flowers & fruit……not many leaves are seen still……but its st flowering & fruiting profusely.

I hope these pictures will help to identify this plant……..the plant is in Silonda Trail of SGNP, Mumbai.


… my guess: the wavy-leaved cissus, Cissus repanda.


Affirmative. This is Ghendal [Cissus repanda]. Please check these links


Just saw the pics. Yes, I agree!

Cordate-leaved climber at Bhimbetka FOR ID :: 20 SEP 13 :: DV : 5 images. 3 posts by 2 authors.

Bhimbetka Rock Shelters in Ratapani Wildlife Sanctuary … about 1850 feet ft asl
Date / Time: 20 SEP 13 at 03:26 PM … Altitude: about 1902 ft asl
ID please … (family: ?)

Dear friends, I have no clue about this large climber with cordate leaf. Also not sure of the tree with compound leaf. The cordate leaf could be about 12 – 15 cm across.
Bhimbetka Rock Shelters, a world heritage site, is famous for its rock paintings. The place is known to be one of the most primitive dwellings of human race. All of the rock shelters are located within the territory of Ratapani Wildlife Sanctuary.


This looks like Ghendal [Cissus repanda]. Please check this link


Indeed … Thank you very very much for the ID.

Yes Cissus woodrowii. thank you …


Taking this as Cissus arnottiana B.V.Shetty & Par.Singh (as it has tendrils, which are not there in Cissus woodrowii (Stapf ex Cooke) Santapau) and as per discussions at Plant ID. and high resolution specimens at GBIFone, two, three, four and five

You’re right …, woodrowii hasn’t tendrils but arnottiana has simple tendrils, not forked….

I hope this plant is repanda only,


Thanks, … I agree with you.

Would this be Cissus woodrowii ?

Wonderful images, … Pl. check with images at Cissus woodrowii


I think matches with images at Cissus woodrowii


Taking this as Cissus arnottiana B.V.Shetty & Par.Singh as per discussions at Plant ID. and high resolution specimens at GBIFone, two, three, four and five

I guess … is right !


Rather it may be Cissus repanda Vahl due to forked tendrils, which are simple in Cissus arnottiana B.V.Shetty & Par.Singh


Yes, it’s repanda …, very happy to see this post from my native,


the stem of the plant looks more similar to C. woodrowii. (https://indiabiodiversity.org/observation/show/1732140?pos=)


Sorry, …, There is wrongly identified woodrowii instead repanda (What you sent reference),

Kindly identify this creeper growing out of rocky terrain, with reddish branches, palmate leaves and minute red/ yellow flowers photographed near Madanapalle, Chittoor District, Andhra Pradesh in February 2017.


Cissus or other genera of Vitaceae?


This appears to be Cissus repanda (Wight & Arn.) Vahl [Vitaceae].


What would you say about this ?

Can it be Cissus woodrowii (Stapf ex Cooke) Santapau as I do not see any tendrils ?


I guess matching !


It could be repanda because the plant seems Straggling shrub, tendrils some times deciduous…

and one more thing woodrowii not reported earlier from Chittoor,


Ok. …

Requesting you to please identify this woody climber in the dry deciduous forest of central India.
I am observing this climber since 3 years but unable to see the flowers and fruits, I don’t know what is the reason but I haven’t seen them. The population is also stable and quite common.
It is a left handed twining climber. Rest can be observed in the photograph.
I am having doubt on being a Vitaceae member.
Please help.
