SILHET ; De Silva. ASSAM ; Jenkins. CACHAR ; Keenan, TENASSERIM ; Kurz. MALACCA ; Maingay.—DISTRIB. Java, S. China.

Branches slender, smooth, cylindric ; twigs puberulous. Leaves 3-4 by 1.1/2-2 in., elliptic-ovate or ovate, acuminate, base rounded or subcordate, nerves 4-6 pairs ; petiole slender, 1-1.1/2 in. Cymes drooping, long-peduncled, very many-fld. ; branches slender, ultimate with racemose flowers ; pedicels slender, 1/2 in. ; bracts minute, ovate. Sepals broadly ovate, obtuse. Corolla 1/4-1/3 in., glabrous, rose-coloured, tube broad obtusely angled, lobes short ovate. Follicles 1 ft., flexuous, smooth, thinly coriaceous. Seeds 1 in., very slender, glabrous, coma as long.—Griffith in his generic character of Euthodon describes the throat of the corolla as without scales ; in the specific he mentions 5 glands in the sinus of the lobes ; these I do not find in his specimens.

Looks like a Cynanchum sp., not sure but.


Pl confirm whether mily latex was there ?? and is there any foetid smell ?


Flowers remembering Tylophora Genus,


If you post high resolution images, maybe we are able to nail it.


Vincetoxicum longifolium (Wight) Kuntze ??


I do not think matches with GBIF specimens – onetwo and three


Please, check probability of Gymnema inodorum –

There is a negative point, though – as per Flora of China – corolla yellow.


I apologize, wrong id, we have  G. inodorum – https://sites.google.com/site/efloraofindia/species/a—l/a/apocynaceae/marsdenia/marsdenia-tingens


Flower may not match !


Will try again, Sir.

Meanwhile, what about this? –
  1. flower – GBIF image
  2. bud(s) – GBIF
  3. located at – https://www.gbif.org/species/9338228

I do not think it matches.


Agreed, Sir ji, and I do not have an alternative!


…, this upload gave me a lesson – for the past few days I thoroughly checked, multiple times, the Asclepiads of FBI !!!

It’s not a member of Asclepiadaceae!
It is Pottsia cantonensis Hook. & Arn., accepted name Pottsia laxiflora (Blume) Kuntze. Please check –
