Mussaenda Flower:  Captured in my native (Malnad) last month.

It may be Mussaenda philippica
pls share a photo with leaves also for proper id

Unfortunately i donot have a pic with leaves. I use 85mm macro lens..
sometimes it is difficult for me to capture both Flower and Leaves in focus as i try to emphasize the flower most of the times. This was captured in my native. I will capture one with leaves next time when i visit and share.


This is Mussaenda erythrophylla Schumach. & Thonn., as per images and details herein.

    Mussaenda erthrophylla – The title of the page.
    But in the rest of the page it is Mussaenda erythrophylla.
    What is correct erthrophylla or erythrophylla?
