Looks like a species of Argyria of Convolvulaceae family on Bridelia retusa

Any close up picture/s of flower/inflorescence and any information on whether the leaves and other parts are hairy or not.


Regards,
Giby

Giby sir, I took these pics at full zoom. I couldn't take any closer picture. I just know  that the leaves were smooth from above.

It looked like Argyreia elliptica to me.

 ( If it is not 
possible to identify with these  images.I shall try to capture it , again,  later.)

Regards
Neha Singh

Neha ji, ... looking at some of the leaves in all the mix of plants, they do look that of Argyreia elliptica.
These are morning bloomers ... around and post noon, they lose their glory.
Please take a look some of my views of Argyreia elliptica at http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=Argyreiaelliptica&w=91314344%40N00&m=tags for comparison.

Regards.
