As per Ronald ji,
My plant in the photo here
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ipomoea_turbinata_(Gariya)_in_Hyderabad,_AP_W_IMG_9714.jpg
looks to be Ipomoea cordatotriloba based upon the appearance of the
sepals.
Pl. give your feedback.

The photo posted as Ipomoea muricata has the tube typical of something
in the batatas series and the sepals most closely match those of
Ipomoea cordatotriloba var. torreyana
the entry here contains my comments on the lower portion of the page
http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/109521/

Typical hairy Ipomoea cordatotriloba sepals can be seen here
http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/163444/
http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/170278/

The photo on the wiki page could not be Ipomoea muricata of other
night flowering Ipomoea species as all night flowering Ipomoea have a
thin elongated tube designed for pollination by moths

Here is the entry showing side-view of the tube of Ipomoea muricata

For your consideration

regards,

Ron

Hello,

I am of the mind to update my assessment of the image in question
from Ipomoea cordatotriloba var.torreyana to Ipomoea triloba after
considering the comparison to the other photos that you have posted to
the wiki entry here


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ipomoea_turbinata_(Gariya)_in_Hyderabad,_AP_W_IMG_9714.jpg
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ipomoea_turbinata_(Gariya)_in_Hyderabad,_AP_W_IMG_9711.jpg
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ipomoea_turbinata_(Gariya)_in_Hyderabad,_AP_W_IMG_9713.jpg

Ipomoea triloba can be glabrous or have some hairs present , although
the corolla of Ipomoea triloba has the same basic shape as Ipomoea
cordatotriloba , the corolla of Ipomoea cordatotriloba is usually
noticeably larger than I.triloba.

best regards,

Ron
