This climber was photographed in Nov. 2008 at Mizoram. These are the only photographs available with me.
This climber reminded me of Dioscorea pentaphylla which we see in Sahyadri ranges…
Date / Time: 12th Nov. / 09:30AM
plant habit: Climber
Hopefully this can be Dioscorea pentaphylla is the leaves are palmately compound with 5 leaflets !!
No! This is not D. pentaphylla!
Looks like D. oppositifolia.
D. oppositifolia is a good choice but can confirm as the leaf orientation is not visible.
