Which Tetrastigma ?? 

Pl. see FOC illustration and images at Flora of China link


Tetrastigma obtectum var. glabrum (Lév. & Vaniot) Gagnep. ??

Keys as per Flora of China:
1 Branchlets, petioles, peduncles, and pedicels ± pubescent.   44a var. obtectum
+ Branchlets, petioles, peduncles, and pedicels glabrous.   44b var. glabrum

So your plant is not Tetrastigma obtectum var. glabrum (Lév. & Vaniot) Gagnep. Further it does not have any distribution as per Flora of China and Checklist of Nepal.

Pl. check with the keys. It is not Tetrastigma obtectum var. glabrum (Lév. & Vaniot) Gagnep.
Also Tetrastigma obtectum var. glabrum (Lév. & Vaniot) Gagnep. is not listed in Flora of Nepal Online.


Flora of Nepal Online not updated so frequently. Book excerpts in my last mail was from authentic book published by the DPR, Nepal where it is listed in Nepal.


I think you are more worried about listing somewhere rather than checking the characters. 


I guess both are equally important.

Cayratia pentaphylla


Did not find Cayratia pentaphylla …!

Keys from Flora of Bhutan at Vitaceae lead me to Tetrastigma and Cissus depending upon the tendrils (simple or bifid).
Pl. check

Tetrastigma obtectum (Wall. ex M.A.Lawson) Planch. ex Franch. ??


Thank you … I shall try to get flower and fruit images in the coming season.
