– another option is A hookeri
Images of Argyreia hookeri at look different:
Thanks a lot, … Than the images by … at Argyreia for identification 050813MK01 will also be of Argyreia pilosa. Pl. confirm.
Also the images by … at ANMAR27/47 Convolvulaceae for identification will be of some other species ? Pl. correct.
Posted images seems to match with type images of Argyreia pilosa at http://convolvulaceae.myspecies.info/content/argyreia-pilosa-6 as identified by …
But type image given in GBIF at http://www.ville-ge.ch/imagezoom/?fif=cjbiip/cjb5/img_19/GDC018005_1.ptif&cvt=jpeg & at http://convolvulaceae.myspecies.info/content/argyreia-pilosa-0 looks different.
May I request someone to help in this matter.
It is not Argyreia pilosa; reasons the young stems/ branchlets are not reddish hirsute; leaf apex is not acute; flowers not in capitate heads etc.,
To me appears more closer to images at Argyreia hirsuta Wight & Arn. as per comparative images at Argyreia
Yes it appears close to Argyeia hirsuta; sepals should be ovate
Also does not match with high resolution specimen of Argyreia hirsuta at the following:
On further examination, I feel it is more closer to Argyreia pomacea Choisy as per high resolution specimens at GBIF
