You asked
“¿ oh-syr-EN-sis ? — ¿ of or from Syria ? … Help needed to know the meaning
I am not certain but perhaps :
osyr from Greek osyris
Osyris is a genus of plants in the Family Santalacea – many known as Sandalwoods.
Perhaps some relation to Sandalwoods in some way…(?)


Oh! … the suffix ‘-ensis’ normally suggests ‘of belonging to some place’.
I had not thought of Osyris genus; again in which case, it would have been osyrioides …. but these are just my thoughts, not certain about it.
Hoping some friend would give us clear idea.


You mentioned :
” Oh! … the suffix ‘-ensis’ normally suggests ‘of belonging to some place’.
I had not thought of Osyris genus; again in which case, it would have been osyrioides .”

Yes, I am aware of the suffix denotations , but ‘taxonomists’ don’t always name correctly and often connotational meanings may apply…e.g., where the Sandalwoods grow in the taxonomists view…
I was thinking outside the ‘box’ for answers…
I hope someone can provide an answer which is clearer to your working perspective..


Convolvulaceae week: RVS5: Argyreia ocyrensis:  Argyreia ocyrensis, from Sirumalai hills…


Please read the species name as A. osyrensis. Sorry for the typo.


The tomentose nature of the argyreia can be perceived here.


The plant characteristics correspond to Argyreia osyrensis photos that I have been sent from Thailand.

Fantastic Capture, …

please check Argyreia osyrensis. I have posted this under the link. 


 

Please help in validating the name errakuta of Argyreia imbricata … listed at ENVIS – FRLHT as ఎర్రకూత
literal meaning:
ఎర్ర erra = red; కూత kuta = conchshell


… you are correct, but kuta have many meanings, kuta is calling by making sound without words.

Shall I help you in Telugu names in https://sites.google.com/site/indiannamesofplants/via-species, it needs some additions/ corrections
barleria-prionitis it is called as Mulla gorinta not gorinta, 


Here are some antrinta pulu, arithilai poruthi it is Tamil name, ENVIS recorded wrongly, because in border  areas with Tamilnadu people mix  Tamil also, hence misappropriation,

There has been confusion with regard to postings in efi at Argyreia osyrensis

– images of both the species posted under it look similar to me.
However, Catalogue of Life treats them as different as are other sites as below:
