Pl. post more pictures showing details.
Yes, in all likelyhood it is an introduced species at the Lalbagh Botanical Garden.
…, it was a very large and old liana.
Forgot to add the photos earlier … Here they are now. Attachments (2)
The images are of Lysiphyllum diphyllum (Banks) de Wit – synonym Bauhinia diphylla Banks.
Earlier instead of Banks the author citation was Buch.-Ham. but this change will be published in Edinburgh Journal of Botany very soon. I have already sent the corrected proof.
