I also checked a few other species, but they did not match as per details below:

MS March/16/09 Jasminum sp. for ID : 6 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (1)
Location : Dampui, Mizoram
Date : 02-03-2016
Habit : Climber with bitter leaves
Habitat : Wild

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

Seems to be a Jasminum species.

Jasminum elongatum ?

It does not match with images of Jasminum elongatum

It will an addition to efi as we do not have this species so far at Jasminum

Jasminum nervosum Loureiro as per discussions at MS Nov, 2020/05 Jaminum sp. for Id

Jasminum angustifolium

It is Jasminum nervosum as per images and details herein.
Looks different from images at Jasminum angustifolium (L.) Willd.

Jasminum scandens ?
Habitat: hill
Flowering: November

Jasminum sp.

Bangladesh website
Also attached here FI entry.
I attachment.

I do not think matches with images of Jasminum scandens as per the following:

Id plz: It  is a wild climbing jesmin. I have taken it from Hill. Scientific name plz

The key in FoC leads to Jasminum guangxiense. I am not sure but. The venation seems to be a good character here. However other features such as size of leaves, and floral parts also needed to confirm the id.

Jasminum guangxiense neither have distribution nor matches with the following:

What does this mean LicensableLicensable ? Jasminum adenophyllum Wall. ex C.B.Clarke ??
or Jasminum multiflorum (Burm.f.) Andrews ??

No. looks different. Pl. see POWOToptropicals and Flora fauna web

I didn’t say this is J. scandens!
Did I?
I just shared what Roxburgh described!

These images are not enough for me to identify the species, if possible at all!
Much time is wasted for the lack of plant details provided here.
However, the features I find are :
  • leaves opposite, simple and leaf blade ovate
  • 3-veined from base
  • base seems to be subcordate, apex acute to acuminate
  • bracts and calyx lobes maybe linear (not clearly visible)
Try exploring J. nervosum Lour. (there is one J. trinerve in Flora Indica, described to be “native of forests near Silhet where it blossoms in March and April”)
To explore more please visit :

Thank you.

Yes, possible as per GBIF – specimen– from Bangladesh.


MS,March, 2023/04 Jasminum sp. for id.: 2 high res. images.
Location : Ailawng, Mizoram

Altitude : ca.1,100 m
Date : 18-03-2023
Habit : Climber
Habitat : Wild

If the ID is correct in this link :

it should be Jasminum nervosum Lour., but images at POWO, GBIF and net show differently.

It matches with the POWO specimen.
