Hello friends,
 
... this Ipomoea is beating me -- the flowers about 3 - 4 cm across -- look like enlarged version of I. eriocarpa ; ID please.

I am having a feeling of this being Ipomoea triloba. I think lobes may not always be three lobes.
In my ealier post, identified as Ipomoea triloba by Dinesh ji himself, lobes were not always three. 
I think saw exactly similar plant in Goa, will post them on processing.

No, Garg ji -- not I. triloba for sure.
 
This flower is about 2.5 - 3 cm; relatively large compared to that of I. triloba's size about 1.0 - 1.5 cm.
And the flower is quite different from from I. triloba.
 
Please compare the photos here P1060616.jpg & P1060613.jpg
 
Regards.

Thanks, Dinesh ji.
By an chance (though myself not convinced), can it be Argyreia hookeri as per FOI link: http://www.flowersofindia.net/catalog/slides/Hooker's%20Woodrose.html

Garg ji, does not seem to be Argyreia hookeri (here the flowers are 5 - 7 cm, and to me they look different too).

... resurfacing query for ID:


Prashant ... Check for Ipomoea marginata.

me ... But, I. marginata is common in my vicinity, and flowers almost round the year (except during rains).

Garg ji ... I am having a feeling of this being Ipomoea triloba. I think lobes may not always be three lobes. In my ealier post, identified as Ipomoea triloba by Dinesh ji himself, lobes were not always three.

me ... No, Garg ji -- not I. triloba for sure.

Balkar ji
I. arachnosperma is now correctly known as I. dichroa. I was trying to find differences between I. dichroa and I. triloba, but could not with limited resources here in USA. Could you kindly find differences from any book available with you.

... to me, Balkar ji's plant looks to be Ipomoea triloba.



Going through descriptions found at JSTOR for

IPOMOEA arachnosperma Welw. ... Sepals lanceolate, 1.2–2.2 mm. long, 2.5–3 mm. wide, ... http://plants.jstor.org/flora/ftea001271
Ipomoea dichroa Choisy ... Sepals lanceolate, 1.2–2.2 mm. long, 2.5–3 mm. wide, ... http://plants.jstor.org/taxon/Ipomoea.dichroa

... the sepals are more wide than long ... which is found otherwise in Balkar ji's plant.



in this respect, agrees with:
Ipomoea triloba Linn. ... sepals long-ciliate, ... http://plants.jstor.org/flora/fwta6509


BUT my visualization may be all wrong.

Dear Gurcharan Ji
i could find differences as
I dichroa - Leaf-blade deeply 3-lobed, rarely entire, 5–13 cm. long, 6–13 cm. wide, acute or acuminate at the apex (in JSTORE)

I dichroa Leaves broad ovate, cordate, silvery white-wooly beneath flowers pink or rosy in lax cymes
( as in Flora of Delhi)

i am attaching a page from flora of delhi and a page from further flowers of sahyadri for description of dichroa, marginata eriocarpa and triloba

OOOOOOOO so many discussion, I want to put my question out of the way :)
Arachnus - means spider; sperma is for seed. What's so spidery about
the seed, may I know please?

I also got the differences

Ipomoea dichroa                                                                                           I. triloba

Plant  densely covered with white or yellowish hairs                              Plant glabrous, nodes hairy

Leaves 5-13 cm long, 6-13 cm wide                                                         Leaves 2.5-7 cm long, 2-6 cm wide

Leaves bristly-pubescent above, white-tomentose beneath                Leaves glabrous or sparsely pilose

Bracts 7 mm long                                                                                          Bracts minute

Sepals bristly or setose                                                                               Sepals unequal,  glabrous or sparsely pilose

Capsule ovoid, 8 mm long, pubescent above                                          Capsule globose, 5-6 mm, bristly pubescent,  apiculate



Though the original plant identity is still elusive for me, Balkar ji's plant is clearly I. dichroa (syn: I. arachnosperma; I. pilosa)

Seeds velvety-white-pubescent  (in I. dichroa/aracnosperma/pilosa)

Thanks Gurcharan ji,
I had failed to see the details - the hairiness of Balkar's plant
is starkly different from that of I. triloba!

Many thanks Gurcharan ji for bringing about the clarity among two species.
It actually set me to check whether there are any I. dichroa in my collection among I. triloba ... http://www.flickr.com/search/?s=int&w=91314344%40N00&q=Ipomoea+triloba&m=text

This ipomoea is being reported from MH , TN , GJ ......this very closely resembles a species from Brazil named Ipomoea piurensis , and another from Africa named Ipomoea acanthosperma , sources claim two to be synonymous .
This species is very different from all the species mentioned earlier in conversation. I am fortunate to have it in my city and I am studying it for last 4 seasons.
