Can it be Rubus paniculatus ?
This is how the plant is described in FLOWERS OF THE HIMALAYA by Oleg Polunin and Adam Stainton,
A RAMBLING CLIMBER DISTINGUISHED BY ITS LARGE SIMPLE OVATE-HEART-SHAPED FINELY TOOTHED LEAVES, AND TERMINAL BRANCHED CLUSTERS OF WHITE FLOWERS WITH NARROW PETALS WHICH ARE MUCH SHORTER THAN THE PALE SILKY-HAIRED CALYX-LOBES. FLOWERS 1-1.5 CM ACROSS. LEAVES 8-15 CM. INCLUDING LEAF-STALK OF 2-3 CM. ALL PARTS PLANT EXCEPT THE UPPER SIDES OF THE LEAVES AND OLDER STEMS COVERED WITH A DENSE MAT OF WHITE OR BUFF HAIRS; PRICKLES ABSENT OR FEW.”
There is an image at plate-31 of the same book.

…, fruit of R paniculatus composed of many glossy black fleshy carpels. The fruit in the image is having red colour.

It should be R.acuminatus, whose fruit is red.


In that case all earlier posts of this mail is R. acuminatus
Please suggest.


Thanks, …, for the id.

Seems to match with high resolution specimen of Rubus acuminatus at http://linnean-online.org/43771/
