SK 3259 25 December 2021: 9 very high res. images.

Location: Surkhet, West Nepal
Altitude:  820m.
Date: 27 August 2021 
Habit : Wild


I hope it is Aspidopterys..


Thank you … for the Genus ID.
But it looks like Aspidopterys cordata (B.Heyne ex Wall.) A.Juss.
Any possibility??


I agree with Aspidopterys cordata


In that case it would be a new addition to Nepal.
I expect further opinions from members !


I think Aspidopterys wallichii Hook.f., as per images and details herein.

Aspidopterys cordata (B.Heyne ex Wall.) A.Juss. does not have distribution in the area as per BSI Flora of India.


What you say …


Once check with keys …, with entire species profile.


I could not get keys for wallichii and cordata !


Available in BSI Flora of India.
