Rubus macilentus Jacquem. ex Cambess.  ??

I think more close to images at Rubus hoffmeisterianus
Pl. check.

Can you give description from Flora of Nepal or some other book as I am not getting anything on this species from net ?

I agree with you for Rubus macilentus Jacquem. ex Cambess. as per GBIFSpecimen (from Nepal).

Please have a look !
