Hello Dineshji,

      Should you ever have opportunity to take any clear closeups of the fully mature seeds, I am interested to correlate seed characteristics with plant morphology , even though others have been not yet been successful at this type of correlation.

I find that the seeds of M.umbellata subspecies umbellata are very consistent in seed characteristics and resultant plant morphology...same is true for M.umbellata subspecies orientalis and I am at a loss why others are unable to see the consistencies...

regards,

Ron

Will do my best to get to the seeds of this Merremia.
Many thanks Ron for looking at these subspecies from a different angle.

Regards.
Dinesh
