The hypocrateriform nature of the corolla is nicely seen in side view.
There are no photos of ripe seedpods or seeds on this site or on the web… please post ripened seedpods and closeup of seeds if at all possible.

Is it Cuscuta? No leaves?
In the begining of the rainy season bigger leaves will come. As winter approaches the leaves will fall or some larvae will eat. We can also eat the fresh leaf of it. It is a common climber in scrub jungles. Cassytha filliformis will be in brown colour. It is in grey colour. Young small leaves are clearly indicating its identity. I also recently posted the flowering twig of Rivea hypocrateriformis.

Rivea hypocrateriformis, I hope
Is it Ipomoea alba:
Location- Warje, Pune.
Habitat – Wild
Plant Habit- Vine
Date-11 th Aug 2011.
I think it is Rivea hypocrateriformis
The leaves and flowers have to be 10-15 cm for this to be I. alba. If the leaves are 5 cm and flowers are 10 cm this could be Rivea as … has commented. Both are night blooming. Giving sizes beyond just ‘large’ helps a correct ID.
I think it has to be Rivea hypocrateriformis.
…, can it be Ipomoea violacea ??
The plant is Rivea hypocrateriformis in my opinion because my reference photos of Ipomoea violaceae show the stamens rarely if ever protrude beyond the tube but most of my reference photos of Rivea hypocraterifomis show the stamens ( not very far but ) very visibly exerted beyond the tube.
When I observed d vine, I didnt know how to observe any plant.(that’s Y “large leaves “)
