If these are two plants in pic DSCN3394-1.JPG, then may be R hypocrateriformis. one of the leaf seen in DSCN3394-1.JPG not belongs to R hypocrateriformis. a Photo with leaves and inflorescence can through more light in the matter. Attaching some of my pics for comparison

The leaves seen towards the right side is that of the climber, the
other one is from some other plant( in DSCN3394 - 1JPG) . The picture
was taken in the dark, a torch for lighting so that I could capture
the flower.
Part of the leaf seen in the other two pictures belong to the same climber.
Regards
Yazdy.
