Stemona tuberosa

Stemonaceae

Disporum leucanthum H.Hara ??


The odd branching habit of the inflorescence makes me think of a species of Chlorophytum. Does it have any basal leaves or possibly a distinctive root/rhizome structure? The flowers don’t look correct for Disporum.


I suppose that Stemona is correct. When I first looked up Stemona when this was sent earlier nothing that looked like it came up in a search.

Any idea about the family ? 


This is a mixture! The leaves are of Tetrastigma. The fruits belong to some other.
