Thanks, …, for beautiful pictures of a new species for efi.

These flowers are not as beautiful as visible in these pictures. They are very minute and inconsoicuous.
They look beautiful only through macro camera lenses.
I’ll try to locate pictures of fruits in my hard disc.

I checked the species listed in the Assam area as per details at Marsdenia.

Pl. confirm or otherwise pl.
