– another option is A hookeri


To me it appears closer to Argyreia hirsuta Wight & Arn. as per comparative images at Argyreia
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 …
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 


I think it may be Argyreia pilosa as per images herein and as per discussions another thread
Also does not match with high resolution specimen of Argyreia hirsuta at the following:
