However, BSI Flora of India Checklist lists only Solandra maxima (Sesse & Moc.) P.S.Green (syn. Solandra grandiflora sensu Deb). POWO says ‘It is a scrambling shrub and grows primarly in the seasonally dry tropical biome(s)’ and CoL gives its introduction in Mauritius (I), Sri Lanka (I) (vs ‘It is a epiphyte and grows primarly in the wet tropical biome(s)’ for Solandra grandiflora Sw. by POWO).

According to the latest checklist for Nepal S. guttata D.Don is listed as introduced sp.


Is this the only species of Solandra listed ?


Yes


That may not be correct as publication attached by … says ‘ According to our data, three species belong to the list of cultivated plants, i.e. S. grandiflora, S. longiflora and S. maxima‘.

Further keys from Bernardello, L. M. & Hunziker, A. T. 1987. A synoptical revision of Solandra (Solanaceae). – Nord. J. Bot. 7: 63M52 are:
4. ‘Calyx and leaves velvety pubescent, mainly in the abaxial surface, with branched and simple trichomes from 25-70 μm. Corolla infundibuliform. …………. 4. S. guttata’ (This can not be checked in your image).
4. Calyx and leaves usually glabrous. Corolla infundibuliform or cyathiform [In S. nizandensis, the calyx is glabrous but the abaxial surface of the leaves may show simple trichomes at both sides of the midrib. Exceptionally, the calyx and leaves of S. grandifora have simple or branched hairs from 60-500 μm, but the corolla is cyathiform]. ………… 5  
……………………
8. Anthers (9)10&13 mm long. Maximum width of the corolla 8-13 cm. Calyx 5-8 cm long, usually shorter than the cylindrical basal region of the corolla tube. Corolla greenish yellow to dark yellow. Calyx and leaves glabrous ………. 7. S. maxima
8. Anthers 7-10 mm long. Maximum width of the corolla 6-7.5(8.5) cm. Calyx (6.5)7-10.5 cm long, usually as long as the cylindrical basal region of the corolla tube. Corolla greenish-white to yellow. Calyx and leaves glabrous, rarely with scattered simple hairs, and exceptionally with many  branched and simple trichomes. ……. 8. S. grandiflora

Indonesian Flower 4:
A picture taken in Taman Topi (Hat Park) Bogor City Center.  It looks like Allamanda, ID is requested.


– this is not alamanda
this is Solandra longiflora
common name is Trumpet plant


– Hard to distinguish between Solandra longiflora and Solandra maxima.
However, if it is from Indonesia, it is more likely to be Solandra longiflora.

Solandra grandiflora  Sw.


Thanks, …, I researched on this subject on net.
Most of our observations so far in efi site are of Solandra maxima including those at FOI.
I could not find differences between the two on net.
However, I could only find these references from literature on net on both these species:
Floriculture in India By Gurcharan Singh Randhawa, Amitabha Mukhopadhyay (1986)- Details: Solandra grandiflora
Flora Indica; or Descriptions of Indian plants … Edited by W. Carey … To … By William Roxburgh (1874): Solandra grandiflora 

From Floral Database of Tamilnadu :

Binomial Habit Notes References Distribution
Solandra grandiflora Sw. Shrub Western Ghats, Evergreen Forests,  Cultivated, Native of Tropical America Flora of Tamil Nadu, VOL. II, 1987 Nilgiri 
In view, I feel that we should go Solandra grandiflora Sw. for all our posts, until some other recent literature proves that our plant stated earlier was misidentified in above mentioned literatures.
Request feedback from others to sort out this matter.

A comparison between the two species is here in the attached paper, if somebody wants to sort it out. Attachments (1)- Solandra-bernardello1987.pdf- 1 MB.

Yes …, In view of the calyx being much shorter than the narrow lower portion of the flower (in the images on FOI), it agrees with Solandra maxima. … images too show the same characteristic. I have attached an illustration of Solandra grandiflora from POWO for comparison.


Yes

This would be Solandra grandiflora as per the discussions on Eflora?
Can you kindly confirm?
