Lonicera hypoleuca Decne. ??


I am not sure as per POWO specimens- one and two.
Also check Lonicera webbiana Wall. ex DC.
What are the other species listed from the area?


According to the book L. angustifolia; angustifolia var myrtillus; caucasia subsp. govaniana; hispida var. bracteata; hypoleuca; lanceolata; macrantha; minutifolia; obovata; purpurascens; quinquelocularis; rupicola; spinosa and webbiana.


Check Lonicera webbiana Wall. ex DC. and Devendraea angustifolia (Wall. ex DC.) Pusalkar


L. hypoleuca fruit is ellipsoid but L. webiana is ovoid to oblong and D. angustifolia is globose as per net images and also leafing pattern not look like matching !


Fruits look different as per GBIF specimen- one.
Flora of China says “Cupule accrescent to 1/2 length of berries;berries red, ellipsoid…”
