Galphimia of course...

BUT when you say climber...
is it twining around support..
has tendrils or branches turn around the support in clockwise or
counter clockwise turns...

or is it just scrambling upward or outwards towards light?

What ushadi is mentioning seems to be correct.it is Galphimia sps.
climber is the word used by layman,It should be used as scrambler.

Dear all,
 
Ofcourse this plant is look like Galphimia gracilis. But that is not a climber.
 
So if that is a climber,it is Tristellateia australis under Malpighiaceae

I think this is a climber from the nature of inflorescence in the first picture and the branches in the last pictures (100_9390 and 036). 
With this assumption I stand for Tristellateia australis of Malpigiaceae family.

Thank you all. It is indeed a climber. I will post a few more
photographs. Since I am unable to attach pictures to this thread I
will have to do it in a new post.

Actually, you can attach photographs to any messages, if you are replying using your gmail account. 
But if you are replying from eflora page you may not be able to do so.

As long as you don't change the subject line after clicking reply to all, with or without attachment, should place in the same thread properly in our group.

Thank you Giby for the identification.

I do not have a gmail account. I use my yahoo id for the postings. And I get the abridged version of eflora mails since I am unable to manage individual mails. So I reply from eflora page. That is perhaps why I am unable to attach pictures to the same thread.

Do you think, if for example I reply to a mail you have sent me as a response to a thread, and address it to eflora id as well with more attachments, it will be accepted as part of the same thread? Or would it end up as a new posting?

Regards,
Sandhya

Here it is identified as Tristellateia australis, while it is identified as Tristellateia australasiae in another thread https://groups.google.com/group/indiantreepix/browse_thread/thread/2d8b4cb840e4f170?hl=en#
 
Both are accepted name as per the plant list, pl. clarify.
