This could be Jasminum trichotomum

Jasminum trichotomum is also the call from me !!

i think this is Jasminum auriculatum
Family: Oleaceae

Can it be Rhyncospermum jasminiodes

Decidedly Jasminum, but not certain of species, perhaps J. leratii. Don’t think J. dichotomum.

I imagine why this cant be the simplest Jasminum multiflorum!!

This shows 2 small leaflets at base (clearly trifoliolate) to call it Jasminum auriculatum, yet in some leaves the leaflets can be missing also.

Thanks for the id and confirmation. This plant is Jasminum auriculatum Vahl of Oleaceae.
Tamil name: Mullai

Leaves should be trifoliate with small lateral leaflets, by seeing the calyx it is Jasminum auriculatum

Shrub ID from Bangladesh SM166 : 4 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (1).
Habit: Shrub/Climber

Habitat: Park

Flowering: September,2014

Location: Dhaka city

Jasminum – species in eFIoraofindia (with details/ keys from published papers/ regional floras/ FRLHT/ FOI/ efloras/ books etc., where ever available) 

I think it may be a cultivar of Jasminum auriculatum Vahl.

However, following FBI species have minute (or very small) calyx lobes, some are pubescence while others are glabrous –

  1. J. roxburghianum Wall. = petioles half an inch or more
  2. J. auriculatum Vahl = in cultivation erect bush; mostly simple ovate leaves; calyx five notched
  3. J. arborescence Roxb. = calyx teeth 2.5 mm or more
  4. J. trichotomum Heyne = allied to J. arborescence var. montana
  5. J. lanceolaria Roxb. = a large climber
  6. J. heterophyllum Roxb. = leaves alternate, simple and trifoliolate
Thank you

The plant under reference is Jasminum auriculatum. (JUTHIKA in Sanskrit. JUHI in Hindi and YUTHIKA in Bangla).

Found in Vandalur forest. Chennai.
It had good smell.
Not sure of Jasminum auriculatum.
Interestingly the flower size is smaller than that of house plants (We call Jathi Malli in Tamil. J.grandiflorum ).

To me also appear close to images at Jasminum auriculatum
