Tetrastigma rumicispermum (M. A. Lawson) Planch. ??

Tetrastigma angustifolia, T.bracteolatum, T.campylocarpum, T.dubium, T.leucostaphylum, T.obovatum, T.obtectum, T.rumicispermum & T.serrulatum are recorded in Mizoram

Any keys, …?

Appears close to Tetrastigma rumicispermum, but shape of the fruits is creating some doubts in my mind compared to those in GBIF specimens-  Specimen 1specimen 2specimen 3

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. ??
Another link

What could it be besides Tetrastigma dichotoma

To me also appear close to images at Tetrastigma serrulatum

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 !

Looking at the warty nature on the stem I guess it could be Tetrastigma rumicispermum (M.A. Lawson) Planch !


But what about non turbinate fruit?
