Hello friends,
 
Attached here are 2 photos of a tiny member of Convolvulaceae
For more views, link to flickr:

I have been wondering whether it really is the way it looks.
... could it be some sort of mutated growth due to poor habitat (content of nutrients like soil, moisture, &c)

Please enlighten with ID.
Thanks and regards.

Dear friends, I forgot providing other information.
 
This small herb, most likely a creeper, I found at Vaghbil, Thane.
The environment is: creek-side scrub, the rocky earth, Found growing along side of waliking trail.
 
Regards.

I think it is Ipomoea eriocarpa, but not very sure.

Thanks, Nayan ji for the feedback.
After going throgh these links particularly descriptions ("Leaf-blade ovate-cordate to linear-oblong, 2.5–8 cm. long, 0.8–4 cm. wide, usually subhastate at the base with rounded lobes, pilose to glabrescent"), I feel Nayan ji is right.

Mangala ji,
Please give some lead on genus, so that I can do some info-search.
My mind has already set on Ipomoea eriocarpa !!!
Regards.

... hmmm ... Petalidium barleriodes is not much discussed on internet / books.
USE search command to find Petalidium.
"P. barleriodes. A very pretty small shrub with round smooth leaves ; bears in February and March a profusion of bunches of large, white, thimble-formed flowers. Propagated by cuttings in the rains "
 
Will be back to this thread, once I find more information / description of P. barleriodes
Regards.

Thanks Garg ji for resurfacing this not-concluded  post.
I have no doubts of my posted plant being Ipomoea eriocarpa R. Br.
Also, the plant is healthy, and growing in its habitat.
Regards.
Dinesh
