Requesting to please ID this climber captured at SGNP, Mumbai in September 2013.
Unfortunately, this is the only pic I have, is this enough to ID?

This could be a Dioscorea sp. (note the venation). But its is still a guess.

Agree. This looks like Dioscorea hispida. Please check these links

Thank you … for ID and reference links…

I also think appears close as per images at Dioscorea hispida Dennst.

Wonderful sighting …! Such nice blooming !!

To me, yes, Dioscorea hispida. I remember the trifoliate leaves; I had seen the plant at Karnala Bird Sanctuary.
