Please check Argostemma found in Kerala ! Looks different from A. quarantena.


Yes, it is A. quarantena, no difference.  Thank you very much for ID my plant,


This is the latest find if ID is correct !


Yes, it is correct, thank you for the information. The plant shown in the daily was from Vagamon, a high altitude place, only 45km from here.


From the image it looks A.quarantena


It’s definitely not A. quarantena. Need full sized images (showing leaves) to say anything about its identification.
