Vitaceae from Valparai for identification 210712MK01: Please help me to identify this climber. It has tendrils opposite one leaf at each node (so could be Vitaceae). The leaves measure up to 20 cm longer and the inflorescence not more than 10 mm longer. Flowers are c.0.5 cm across. I found this along edge of a rain forest in Western Ghats.
Place: Valparai, TN
Date: 12 July 2012
Alt.: 930 m asl
Could this be a variety of Cissus antartica ? A guess.
Following Keys in Book link at Flora of Karnataka, I will go for Cissus latifolia Lam. (syn: Cissus gigantea Bedd.; Cissus glauca Roxb.) and also as per GBIF
Pl. see high resolution specimen at GBIF
ID request-21102012-PKA2: 7 images.
Seen this climber at the outskirts of Mumbai. Looks like some Vitaceae sp?
I think this is Cissus nodosa
Thanks … It does looks like Cissus nodosa.
please check if this plant is a large liana ?
Pillared look is very unique, like C nodosa, but that species not being reported from India.
C. latifolia, could be a match. But cannot see ‘fringed calyx’ described by K Sasidharan on Kerala plants. He may be able to confirm.
Could be Vitaceae member, Cissus sp.,
Cissus latifolia Walp. ??
You may be right … The post was distributed under C. javana? in which leaves under surface as well as stem are tinged red, which we don’t see here.
A Cissus sp., possibly C. repanda. I have observed these kinds of hanging roots in C. repanda
Yes it’s Cissus only,
Where and when were these images taken ? Was it wild ?
We have similar observations at Cissus latifolia Lam., but distribution limited to South India.
Also see details at Cissus repanda Vahl as suggested by …
All these photos I have taken on 13th September from a plants -lover house at Dimapur, Nagaland. Its not wild at all,
If it is planted as you stated, I feel it may be Cissus latifolia Lam.
Cissus latifolia Walp.
Yes, it is dear …, thank you very much for ID my plant,
