Yes it is Piper mullesua.
May I get this specimen? As the mullesua is a complex species, I am trying to resolve the problem. 

Regarding the specimen it is from the Botanical garden and I need permission for that as well as sending it from Nepal to India. I shall look into the possibility.

Yes it is also Piper mullesua 
(Presently I have identified many ecotypes of the species which have some variations and I am working on that)
May I get the collections of these from different localities including the one from Nepal

Which Piper ??

Its a P. mullesua but with ill developed spikes. In some of the population P. mullesu shows this form.

My question. if something is ill developed and we only have one spike. how does one determine the species.

I agree with you … that given a POPULATION OF SEVERAL SPIKESand if one or two are ill formed or ill developed, it could still be the species we have in mind….
one could surmise that the given specimen is indeed the species in mind. but just one spike?
Please suggest id for this Piper sp. which seemed to be shrubby..
Recorded from near Pelling in wild…


Its look like male plant of P. mullesua Buch-Ham. ex D.Don which also grow as erect bushy shrub. 

Piper mullesua from Askot Wildlife Sanctuary, Pithoragarh, Uttarakhand at 1300m altitude


Is it P. mullesua or P. peepuloides?


This is very interesting and is close to P. mullesua and resemble to P. arunachalensis Gajurel et al
It is not P. peepuloides
