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.
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.
