Any cuscuta sp

I hope Cuscuta chinensis

Perhaps close up of flower would help further.

Is it by any chance Cuscuta epithymum

I think id of … is Right

I think C. epithymum is a species closer to C. europaea in having flowers in globose heads and is characterised by having tetramerous flowers, whereas this one has pentamerous flowers.

in Maharashtra there is 2 species of Cuscuta i.e. C. reflexa and C. chinensis,,, photo doesnt match to any…

C reflexa and c chinensis surely not. In our area both found C reflexa natural and C chinensis only reported in NDRI campus Karnal

Flowers only should help in confirming species.

would consider it just as Cuscuta sp.
… all of the flowers were in a stage that is seen in one of the photo, at least those among the ones I could get to see on searching.

Could this be the captioned species flower
