what a lot of flower buds
no intact leaf? insects love it..I guess


Another fantastic upload.
I think almost everyone must be familiar with one of our eflora member; “Adittya Dharap”. He use to write series of articles on wild flowers in Marathi daily “Loksatta”. He has written one very nice and informative article on Dioscorea pentaphylla where in he has named this as “Motiya“, very appropriate name . I liked this article very much and thought of sharing with you all. Here is the link for the same.
This was published on 24th July 2010.
Well done …


Though the name is D. pentaphylla ; the leaves are often trifoliate rather than with five foliate.


… – agree with you on the number of leaflets but I have seen several plants with 5 leaflets as well.
The variation is indeed considerable.

I can observe three foliate leaves here which is common with this. The leaves may be 3 or 5 foliate.

Found this climber with this vegetative growth………
with a very slight touch the fruit came off the branch………
some of the leaves were trifoliate and some has four leaflets……
it was in the dense forest so could not get clear pictures……..
the picture was taken yesterday (2.10.13) in SGNP, Mumbai.

This should be Dioscorea pentaphylla.

Though it is difficult to identify from vegetative stage of the plant and only one image, yet I tried my best to get close to this plant. Based on its habit and leaves (5-foliate with entire margins) it might be: Dioscorea pentaphylla L. Family: Dioscoreaceae. With almost 25 documented (internationally) synonyms.

Dioscorea pentaphylla L.

Dioscorea pentaphylla L. to me too, 3-7 leaflets and panicled male inflorescence are the identifying characters. Leaflet shape may vary from ovate to obovate to lanceolate.

Dioscorea ¿ pentaphylla ? … (family: Dioscoreaceae)

I have been believing the posted plant to be Dioscorea pentaphylla; but on a relook, the inflorescences are not hanging in typical bunch at every node.
The leaves are trifoliate, and you may see them closely by clicking on the 4th photo. It will lead to a photopage in flickr site. Please click on the photo – it will zoom and allow you to pan the photo. You may otherwise decide to download the photo by clicking on appropriate “download” icon.
Please validate.


Appears close as per first glance at

After going through descriptions in various sites including FoI and eFI, I am convinced that the plant is indeed Dioscorea pentaphylla.

Please validate following names for Dioscorea pentaphylla:
વાજ નો કંદ vaj no kandThe Famine Foods Database
નાનો જંગલી કંદ nano jungli kandBiological Diversity of Gujarat … current version of PDF seems to have shortened content – we no longer find the names’ list which was found earlier.

Found few more names, I am sure these are not common, may be limited to certain regions of Gujarat …
હુરો huro … વનસ્પતીઓ ના ગુજરાતી તથા બોટનીકલ નામ ની યાદી. (વૈધ કે.જે.ઝાલા)

વેણી વેલ veni vel … thanks to Jalamsinh Vala for help with this name in facebook


From what I gather, the name ‘Vaj no kand‘ was documented by George Alexander Gammie in his paper “A note on the plants used during famines and seasons of scarcity in the Bombay Presidency” published in the Records of the Botanical Survey of India, vol. II, Calcutta, 1903. Have attached the relevant pages herewith. This name appears to be used for other Dioscorea species as well, not only in Surat district (Gujarat) but also in the former Khandesh district (Maharashtra). It would be spelt in Gujarati as વજનું કંદ or વજ કંદ. Also known as નાનો જંગલી કંદ.
I am not acquainted with the other names but વેણી વેલ is an evocative epithet since it is descriptive of the inflorescences (likened to braided hair). Most vernacular names of Dioscorea spp. refer to the tubers.
Attachments (1)

very apt and appropriate information, …, thank you.
I find that often what … write as gujrarati names of medicinal plants do not match with what i find in Bapalal Vaidyas book and sometimes not even in … guj forest flora etc.  His must be truly local vernacular names that never got in any academic books.
yes the વેણી વેલ  sounds like a gajara of flower that women use  ie વેણી.
Besides that I do not really see five leaflets even after enlarging, … Am i missing something?


Thank you very much … for the information and clarity. …, this species of Dioscorea, has either 3 or 5 leaflets; one of its synonym is Dioscorea triphylla.

that’s the confusion. does plant list say their molecular //genetic analysis shows same genes? the genes that produce three leaf pattern with its unique venation. must be different from genes that produce five leaf pattern with a very different venation. and the kand of the two type must be of different nutritonal or medicinal value. i just hope plant list and so kew, mobot, nybg et al will resolve such issues across the board
i am sure some one somewhere had done molecular analysis. any way you current plant has three leaves.
i wish you would see that their veins are different from the true pentaphylla leaves.

Dioscorea hispida has easy to recognize leaflets, and fruits though hanging, are quite different looking.

Requesting to please ID this climber captured at Rajgad near Pune in Sep 2014.
Is this Dioscorea pentaphylla?


Check with Dioscorea hispida (three foliolate) or pentaphyla (five foliolate)


Thank you … for the ID. I think it is D. hispida..


In view of the concluded ID in this post, I think this plant, too, is D. pentaphylla. Could you please validate.

Yes …, Dioscorea pentaphylla. Some may want to reach the original post of this thread, to view pictures.

Please help me to identify this species. Though it looks like D. pentaphylla, but without thorn or spine on stem; and Inflorescence is also different from other species I am posting here.
Place: Assam

Yes, appears to be Dioscorea pentaphylla as per details and references herein.

Climber For ID : SGNP,Mumbai : 030713 : AK-1 : Attachments (2). 5 posts by 3 authors.
climber seen at SGNP, Mumbai on 29/7/2012.
The fruits in the picture belong to a different climber of the Wild Grape.
Id please.

Looks like Dioscorea pentaphylla,


Should be some Vitaceae member. Diocorea do not produce rounded fruits.


The fruits belong to Ampelocissus latifolia, the climber is different. Initially, it confused me too.

Photographed on my property at Shahapur yesterday (13.10.13). Please identify this climber.

Could be Cyphostemma trilobata of Vitaceae.


A reply from …: ‘It is young plant of diocorea juvenile plant, diocorea species cannot be determined’.


Looks both guesses incorrect !
