I agree that it is some type of Ipomoea and the fruit looks familiar
to me but the exact species is not coming to the forefront of my
mind...perhaps afterward I may have some additional feedback

Hello,

I think it of value to compare the plant which is the subject of this
thread with the plant in the following thread here
Convolvulaceae for id from Tirupati-280111-1

Am not very much sure...
Could this be Ipomaea parasitica...???

Hello ,

Ipomoea parasitica would have reflexed fruit and soft thorny
looking protuberances on the stems as can be seen here

... to me the fruits' picture IMG_1938.jpg ... reminds of Ipomoea marginata.
Got a photo at http://www.flickr.com/photos/dinesh_valke/3936039105/

Not sure if some other Convolvulaceae member(s) bear(s) similar fruit.

Regards
Dinesh.

Hello,

Thanks Dinesh ji,

The fruit does seem to match very well with the Ipomoea
marginata.

The leaves in the above photos are more cordate and I think it is good
to keep this in mind when considering other plants that may be Ipomoea
marginata.

There are also some leaves as in photo 1939 which are larger , much
darker colored and more elongated and I was considering these leaves
in the potential differential ID , although as Dinesh ji has already
indicated the fruit does (at this point) appear identical to Ipomoea
marginata , so unless there is some additional information forthcoming
from the plant in question I would agree on an ID of Ipomoea
marginata.

regards,

Ron
