Strychnos sp.

Thank you sir.

From the attached photos, it works out to Strychnos cinnamomifolia var. wightii whose current name is Strychnos wallichiana. Please tell me if I have worked out the key correctly.

Corolla tube much longer than lobes and scandent habit. 

Yes, … For the characters mentioned by you, the key clearly leads to Strychnos cinnamomifolia var. wightii.
