Habit : Undershrub ?
Habitat : Wild
Apocynaceae member, Ceropegia sp.,
What are the species reported from your area?
Ceropegia angustifolia, C.longifolia and C.macrantha are recorded in Mizoram
Does not match with any of these species as per Ceropegia macrantha, Ceropegia longifolia and Research Gate
I guess this is not Ceropegia sp.
Probably genus Brachystelma
The genus Brachystelma is not recorded in Mizoram
Anything from Frerea or related genus?
No, nothing sir
Do you have any other photos like that of roots etc.?
Sorry ! No, sir
without detailed photos of this specimen, we cannot go more further on the Identification
Thanks, … But are sure that it is Brachystelma ?
At present it doesn’t look like Brachystelma.
Corona in the image is not visible and the tuber is present or not. Corona whether single or double. If it is double, then it is Brachystelma
An Apocynaceae I believe, Pentasachme caudatum.
Yes … is right. Its Pentasachme caudatum Wall. ex Wight (Apocynaceae) distributed from Nepal to East Himalaya and much of SE Asia.
I think … got it right! Great work …!
