Cynanchum tunicatum flowering: Was at my bungalow in Khandala yesterday. Panchali was flowering. Sending a few photographs.

I checked the photograph in flowers of India ( link: http://www.flowersofindia.Coated0Swallow-Wort). The plant photographed and identified by  ….  looks different. I do not know any thing about this plant. One of you may clarify as to which is correct or any eco-typic variation exists

This climber was identifed by Dr.Almeida from photographs of a previous years flowering

…, there should be no difference.
… plant has twined around an armed shrub.
The difference in leaves among plants in mine and … photographs are due to their ages.
Here are all the views of Cynanchum tunicatum at my flickr photostream:
Flowers do not show any difference.
This said, others may validate my point.
