.. sp. of Smilax ?
Smilax species in efi so far
Sorry but I thought of Asteraceae, may be Mikania !!
Chromolaena glandulosum……(I may be wrong)
Mikania species so far in efi
Cissampelopsis corymbosa (Wall. ex DC.) C.Jeffrey & Y.L.Chen
Cissampelopsis buimalia (Buch.-Ham. ex D.Don) C.Jeffrey & Y.L.Chen
Syn : Senecio buimalia Buch.-Ham. ex D.Don
There are no ray florets here as in Cissampelopsis buimalia
I think your earlier suggestion of Cissampelopsis corymbosa (Wall. ex DC.) C.Jeffrey & Y.L.Chen is correct as per FoPI & GBIF– specimen one, two, three, four and as per keys at Cissampelopsis
OK … !
Requesting to please ID this plant captured in the Ooty Botanical Gardens, Ooty in November 2013.
Could this be Cissampelospis corymbosa of Asteraceae?
Thanks … for the feedback…
However, I did not find any this in the efi database nor in the plantlist.
Could you please provide a reference link for the same?
