needs identification: I found this tree on Taljai hill, Pune. Please identify.

This is the Green Milkweed Climber [Wattakaka volubilis]. 


Just for record it is a climber often twining around trees and not a tree.
The accepted name is Dregea volubilis (L.f.) Benth. ex Hook.f. (syn: Wattakaka volubilis (L. f.) Stapf).

Both Kew Plant List and GRIN do not recognise Wattakaka as distinct genus.

Dregea volubilis is vattakkakkakkoti, wattakakacodi in Malayalam … … post at efi thread

This pictures taken last week only.

My specimens seem to be much more velvety, is it normal?


… I am afraid I cannot voice on that, …
I will take it as normal; however hoping some friend comes to rescue, and validates 🙂


Sending you some of my photographs for comparison. Attachments (3)


please check in Cooke’s Flora
it says
Corolla hairy outside……Marsdenia tenacissima (Dregea Tenacissima)
Corolla glabrous outside……M. volubilis
the description of M. tenacissima: A large twinning shrub, old stem with grey corky bark, BRANCHLETS SOFTLY PUBESCENT.
the description of M. volubilis: A large twinning shrub, older BRANCES GLABROUS.
Hence i feel it can be Marsdenia tenacissima
however i had not seen Marsdenia tenacissima, but collected Dregea volubilis and can say the pubescent plant is different that D. volubilis.


 … a search on internet, I found these links, possibly may help in ID of … plant.

Below is … response … 
…, you had rightly doubted about your plant being Dregea volubilis. Many thanks to you; an enlightening post.
Please check Marsdenia tinacissima (syn. D. tinacissima) as pointed out by …


Thanks … I will concentrate on Marsdenia tenacissima and report back soon. 
… (and several others actively contributing in the group), who have such a keen eye, zeal to investigate and not take a names published in Floras for granted, the group has a great future. We should not be surprised if the real face of Indian Flora has a changed look soon. Recent interactions on the group give a strong indication that probably Indian Flora is much more and different than what we know at present.
Not to forget the inputs of our keen photographers in the group, with little or no training in the study of plants, supplying a wide array of beautiful photographs from different parts of India. 
Please keep up the spirit.


I believe this is Wattakaka volubilis a climber from Aesclepediaceae. Very common in Pune
Don’t know which is the latest name.


I think you missed the thread. It has travelled a long distance. Here it is


Here are the fruits, it probably finally confirms Marsdenia tenacissima. please verify.


This doesn’t look like Marsdenia tenacissima for the following reasons:
1.  The peduncle (the stalk carrying the flowers cluster) in the picture looks nearly as long as a leaf. In Marsdenia tenacissima, leaves are 8-10 cm long, whereas the peduncle is only up to 2 cm long.
Infact, leaf stalks are supposed to be longer than the peduncle.
2. The paired seedpods are stalkless here, whereas in the illustration at Flora of China, they are clearly stalked, and of a different shape too: http://www.efloras.org/object_page.aspx?object_id=85989&flora_id=2
3. In Marsdenia tenacissima, the flowers are borne in branched clusters, whereas in the pic here, they are in a very symmetric cluster, reminiscent of Dregea volubilis.
Interestingly, the paired fruit of Dregea volubilis is stalkless. So, it maybe something close to Dregea volubilis.


Reply from … in a separate thread:
“‘After ossilating between Dregea volubilis and Marsdenia tenacissima for a long time,  I revisited the plant  after returning from California. I photographed nearly mature fruits which have grown to about 10 cm in length. I want to finally settle for Dregea volubilis. It matches with … photographs on Flikr. Need your comments.”

I have great doubt especially that this species seems absent from Sri Lanka (see biodiversityofsrilanka.blogspot).

Dregea volubilis  (L.f.) Benth. ex Hook.f.  

the architecture of the flowers is similar to hoya flowers.
and thats ok, both Dregea and Hoya belong to subfamily   Asclepiadoideae of family Apocynaceae. i love this


Thanks, … I glanced through GBIF page for status of name and synonyms … and found there are following synonyms in Hoya: Hoya viridiflora / Hoya volubilis / Hoya lacuna.
And Dregea volubilis (L.f.) Benth. ex Hook.f. is now known as Marsdenia volubilis Cooke


yes. complicated//confusing mix up. until molecular biology tests.
