Could be Poikilospermum suaveolens or Fissistigma verrucosum

Schisandra propinqua (Wall.) Baill.  ??

It is Schisandra propinqua

Kadsura heteroclita

Thanks, … To me looks different from images at Kadusra heteroclita, but looks more closer to images at Schisandra propinqua

May I request you to pl. have a relook.

You are right, they are very similar but based on the young fruits I would still say Kadsura

I guess you are right …

May be Kadsura heteroclita as per discussions at another thread: Re: Kadsura heteroclita or Schisandra propinqua?

Fruit image of Schisandra propinqua looks different as per images herein

Kadsura longipedunculata in FOI : 2 posts by 2 authors.


I feel images of Thingnam ji at Kadsura longipedunculata in FOI, may be Kadusra heteroclita as per images and details herein.
I did not find any references of Kadsura longipedunculata being found in India on the net including Flora of China, POWO and Catalogue of life.
Pl. check.




Thanks …, I had already given it considerable thought. It is true that there is no record of Kadsura longipedunculata in India yet. However, the long peduncles of our flowers do not agree with Kadsura heteroclita (see description at FOC), while they agree well with Kadsura longipedunculata.  So I treat it as a new record for India.
