Clematis buchananiana ?;
Date: 28 December 2016
Sir it may be Clematis heynei or C. gouriyana
Given my criticism of some works, I have found Kapoor’s efforts of value – extensive and thorough. He examined a lot of herbarium specimens, appears to comment about each Clematis known from India at that time, in a way one can have confidence in. His written descriptions and the line drawings seem of a high standard
I agree not many images from different angles. The plant was situated on a slope without any access. All pictures were shot with 800 zoom lens. That is all I could submit
One of the advantages of concentrating upon plants at higher altitudes in Trans-Himalaya is that there are no such creatures to avoid!

I realise this all seems rather involved, having taken two sets of photos now, however, for MOST genera, there are few (IF ANY) references for the fruits of a genus and OFTEN no way of reliably distinguishing between them on the basis of fruits alone.
This location has plenty of C. buchanania and have not seen other sp.
So it could be the same. However, I shall try for fresh images in coming season.
