“It is indeed Telosoma cordata a fragrant flowering creeper the flowers of which are called a s kodi sampangi in Tamil”
“I revisited this plant a couple of days ago, on the 18th, this month. The flowers are not fragrant, nor even the faintest way. I attach latest photos.
“Please see the link on T.pallida, wherein Prof. Gurucharan ji has posted the photographs (ID confirmed):
https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!msg/indiantreepix/6SmkEdeOsTk/_9onzeT-ZogJ. The photographs of the leaves posted by you do not match with those. Therefore, please recheck for ID confirmation or otherwise..” from Mahadeswara ji.
"Today once again i recorded some more pics of the same plant, from the same place. Hope these pics will help determine the ID of this species, be it T. pallida or T. cordata or some other. These flowers are never fragrant, as have been checked by some of my students also.
Average scaling of leaves and flowers :-
