Some Tetrastigma sp ??  

Pl. Check with species we have so far in efi: Tetrastigma

On comparing several images the photographs look somewhat close to Tetrastigma dichotoma. Pl check this link : https://floraofsingapore.wordpress.com/category/class-magnoliopsida/superorder-rosanae/order-vitale/family-vitaceae/

Tetrastigma dichotoma is not ljustisted in Nepal .

Could it be just Tetrastigma serrulatum (Roxb.) Planch. ??

What could it be besides Tetrastigma dichotoma

To me also appear close to images at Tetrastigma serrulatum

Is not it more close to Tetrastigma rumicispermum (M.A. Lawson) Planch. ???

To me looks different from images at 


I still feel it is Tetrastigma rumicispermum (M.A. Lawson) Planch.

ACFPoN describes branches as ‘Branchlets terete, conspicuously tuberculate when old, glabrous’ which matches here, leaf pattern also matches according to the link Les galeries photos 
and T. serrrulatum fruit color  does not match with the image.

I think it will not be Tetrastigma rumicispermum with turbinate fruits as per keys at Online flora of Nepal and MNHN specimen

But fruit image do not look like T. serrulatum !
