Shrikant ji
I see some confusion somewhere. Lepisanthes is a genus of Family Sapindaceae, trees and shrubs.

I see no match for Lepisanthes umbellata in IPNI, GRIN or even Kew Plant list

The only reference I found in the link indicated below, a member of Piperaceae, I think again in error


Perhaps you can throw some light.

A mix up in excitiment. Lepianthes umbellata (L.) Raf. is now
Pothomorphe umbellata (L.) Miq. and it is Piperaceae and not
Papaveraceae. Hope now this is on dot. Regards, Shrikant

Dear Shrikant ji,
 Just a small doubt,  "What we see in the photographs i posted  are fruits, leaves or something else?"

regards
Prashant

Prashant ji
I think we can see a few leaves in the last photograph. They should look like these:

Thanks Shrikant ji. I don,t think i would have ever come closer to this ID myself. I was initially thinking it to be some parasitic climber.

Thanks Shrikant ji for sorting out this mystery.

Prashant
