Thanks, … Appears to be some climber. Isn’t it ?
Yes! Could it be Smilax?
Tetrastigma leucostaphylum ??
Pl. check with images at https://commons.wikimedia.Tetrastigma_leucostaphylum
Here the leaves are 5 pedate but in the link provided the leaves are trifoliate (although some are 5 pedate). Hence I request you to kindly check the same with any authorised flora.
I think similar plant with about three four images with pinkish fruit posted by you was identified as some Tetrastigma species. Pl. check.
Pl. check with images at Tetrastigma serrulatum
I guess there is mix up of two sp. in the post.
First two images CSC_0782.JPG and DSC_0536.JPG
belongs to Rhamnus napalensis (Wall.) M. A. Lawson and the
remaining images belong to Tetrastigma serrulatum (Roxb.) Planch.
Need your validation please !
Image 4,5,6,7 and 8 Yua thomsonii (M.A.Lawson) C.L.Li ??
Syn : Cayratia thomsonii (M.A.Lawson) E.Reid & M.Chandler
Looks different from Yua thomsonii as per
See the leaf attachments.
Leaves appears to be always 5 foliate. That takes me to T. serrulatum, if it is slender climber, as per Keys in Flora of Nepal
It may be Tetrastigma aplinianum (Collett & Hemsl.) Momiyama if it is a robust climber as per keys in Flora of Nepal, as it appears to have unbranched tendrils with lax inflorescence.
I also checked in Keys in Flora of Bhutan at Tetrastigma
I guess you are right …!
